I absolutely love flowers and the Zoob house is always full of beautiful blooms. The colours inspire my paintings and they always make me smile. I love seeing how the colours of a vase of flowers seem to be captured and echoed in my paintings, perhaps because I use oil paints which are created from natural elements. They really make a room feel alive especially when the sun is shining through the windows.
Roses, peonies and lilies are my favourite flowers and the waterlily has become a recognisable motif in many of my favourite paintings including some of the latest works to be added to my Playtime Collection.
