"Coldswolds Water Park is an area of outstanding beauty - it is a haven for many different types of flora and fauna endemic to the British Isles. With the expansion of housing in the Cotswolds, areas such as the Water Park provide a valuable and safe haven for species such as the Fresh Water Crayfish and Water Voles. The Water Voles like to feed on these types of grasses and used to be able to be seen swimming around the plants where their nibbling would make the grasses quiver, but not so much these days. 

This artwork was created using layers of dry pigment in earth colours, some locally sourced and mixed with different binders layer upon layer. Watercolour was used to enhance the colour and some inks to add dimensional surface to the painting. I want the viewer to feel like they could reach out and touch the foliage."
