I’m really excited to launch the first in a range of 12 new botanical prints.
An elegant Snowdrop – Galanthus nivalis. The first flowers to appear after winter in the UK, I love to see them break through the ground and remind us all that spring is coming. Their delicate heads are like little fairy skirts, and their simple white and green hues are so elegant.
The Snowdrop is carefully drawn in pen and ink. I’ve added the the shades of green and and text digitally to create a limited edition signed A5 giclee print on lovely archival paper.
This is the first in a series of 12 artworks for the Flower Power Fund, fundraising for Marie Curie. 40% of the sale price of each print will be donated to Marie Curie (registered charity number 207994 England & Wales, SC038731 in Scotland).
The prints are to tie in with the 12 beautiful hand-dyed knitting yarns that are also being released for the Fund, one a month over the course of 2018. Each yarn is inspired by a different flower and I am going to draw each of them to create more lovely prints. You can find out more about the Flower Power Fund on Facebook here and Instagram here.
