Floral Watercolor Gallery 

I began a journey in 2014, three years ago, to overcome my fear of water colors. Water colors intimidated me and enticed me at the same time. I loved the luscious luminous detail that can be depicted with water color but was completely baffled by the process to achieve it.

So, I enrolled in the Botanical Illustration program at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh and embarked on a journey of learning and discovery. I learned about colored pencils, pen and ink as well as water colors. The instruction and exercises helped me along my journey of discovery and over time my fear of water colors disappeared and turned into true joy. Some of you may have followed my journey on Instagram and thank you to everyone who supported me along the way.
