Kelly Higgs " Orchidées"

"...Kelly adores flowers, particularly orchids, for their fascinating forms. An orchid growing in a gorgeous pot, throws the natural beauty of the plant, together with that of a man-made object. This combination forms a composition which is both decorative and botanical, with the butterflies and calligraphy adding a whimsical touch. The designs on her bird pots were originally inspired by John Gould’s ornithological lithographs. Her paintings are done entirely in watercolours on hand-pressed watercolour paper..."
John Gould 1804 - 1881
