Strelizia by Kate May
Painting of bird of paradise plant developed from a drawing.
I enjoy the richness of oil paint, mark making and the the constant challenge of balancing shape, line, colour and tone. Drawing is an important basis to my work and I have a keen interest in photography. I have mostly explored abstract landscape but India and Australia have both sparked an interest in the contrast and colour on exotic foliage.
