Botanical Beauties

There's nothing like a beautiful bunch of flowers or a single bloom in the garden to lift the spirits!
I'm constantly inspired by the amazing colour combinations that can work so unexpectedly well.

Who'd have thought purple and red could look so great together, and there's nothing quite so attention grabbing as bright pink and yellow!

Probably because of my scientific background, I also find inspiration in the way flowers are structured, and the patterns and textures that result.

These mini pom-pom Chrysanthemums are guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and I can't help but marvel at the organic geometry of this Dahlia too!

And just to prove that nature can do straight lines. . . . . . .  (well almost!)

A selection of cushions from my current collection, Petals & Pixels, inspired by some of the above images, sunsets, and pixellation
