Taraxacum is the Latin name for dandelions. I love a dandelion even if they are seen as weeds. Whilst in bloom they shine out against their settings with such joy. Then when they go to seed and turn into clocks, they have an ethereal and gossamer appearance. They are associated with wishing and that truly appeals to me

A number of these paintings are available as blank greetings cards

Reimagined Dandelion Clocks

I feel this images allude to stories of hopefulness

Graphic Taraxacum

Large scale simplified and limited palette paintings of overlapping spheres. These have been painted using metallic paint and are large scale

By now you’ll know I love the shape and form of these temporary jewels. Here I really investigate the qualities I love so much and let my love of colour run away with me

Abstract Taraxacum

Using expressive marks and techniques with colour, I love to explore the circular form of dandelion clocks

Fairytales

Loose intricate paintings that suggest a fairytale landscape. After all you should make a wish when you see a dandelion clock

Feelings

Although dandelion clocks have a very soft texture, a way of describing this in paint is by using texture.

Continuous line, well almost

Loose depiction of the circular form with bold outlines

What is going to emerge?

Dots and splodges of loose ink inform the emerging image. Oh I do love a circle

Dreams do come true

Warm fresh colour, mixed media pieces on canvas

Really can’t help going down the circle route…it’s never ending
