Annual Open Exhibition 2020


Important Information

Given the current situation it has been decided to move the 19th UKCPS Open Exhibition online.

This has allowed us to make a few changes.
Whilst the emphasis is on Nature in Art, as in wild nature in all its forms, a second category has been added with an open theme.

New closing date for entries
31st July 2020

I create mixed media drawings and paintings that depict the beauty of flowers. I predominantly work with liquid acrylics and coloured pencils and love using bold and metallic pigments. I am inspired by traditional botanical art, however I add a contemporary touch through using backgrounds, geometric patterns and sometimes gold leaf. This adds a sense of vibrancy and personality whilst highlighting the individual identity and uniqueness of nature.
