"Observational drawings - and a fascination with pattern and detail in both the natural and man made world form the basis for this large etching and watercolour.
I produced sketches and line drawings of the Tropical House interior at Kew Gardens, -- and also shapes and patterns of plants and flowers.
I kept these drawings for a long long time and pondered on how I might use them in a work.
Eventually, a final composition was constructed from many of these drawings --- with some artistic licence on the positioning of the plants!
This compilation drawing was transferred to a zinc etching plate, printed, and then painted with watercolours" - Meg Dutton VPRBA
Nathan David Award for Sculpture
A £150 prize for sculpture
