About the artist:
Josephine has been painting seriously for the last ten years, mainly in watercolour, which is her favourite medium.
She likes to use the paint with depth and intensity and takes inspiration from William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement for her colours and design.
Josephine likes her work to be precise and detailed, translating botanical subjects into distinctive, stylised designs with layers of transparent colour and tone.
One of her floral images won her a place in a ‘Children in Need’ competition sponsored by Moorcroft Pottery. ‘Purple Dawn’, based on a study of clematis, was produced as a ‘one off’ vase by the company and auctioned for the charity.
Her love of detail extends to the painting of architectural themes, where she uses the same technique and she is currently engaged in projects to depict buildings in Chaddesley Corbett and Henley in Arden
Josephine is also a member of The Birmingham Society of Botanical Artists. She also teaches Flower Portraiture.
