The Flower Collection

The flowers collection started with my Dad's funeral in 1995. I saw the beautiful flowers that people had sent and thought what a shame it was that all these magnificent flowers would be gone so soon. So I started painting them. 

I love that flowers are so extroverted and colourful. Without any apology, God has shown us what He is like. I am breathless when I look at a flower and see the graduation from one colour to another. I see the unbelievable shapes and the delicateness, the vast array of colours and the blossoms in the flowering trees. The beauty is endless. I see the hand of God in designing and putting together all those colours and I just think if I am able to capture that impression in a painting, then I have done my job.
