I love playing with colour and have experimented with different media.

When I discovered this method of using water soluble wax pastels (Neocolour) on wet Japanese paper I was so excited.

The colours blend and move themselves creating fabulous patterns, sometimes with the help of some sea salt crystals.

I then add another layer of detail either with gold ink or using water soluble coloured pencil and watercolour paints.

People often ask if these are done on silk – no, it’s a special paper which I buy from Gallery Anthony in Mullion in Cornwall.
