Watercolour floral illustrations for Australian House and Garden magazine

Each month, I illustrate Flower of the Month, a column within the letters section of Australian House & Garden magazine. Flowers are chosen by the House & Garden team and are available in Australian florists around the time of publication.
I love painting these flowers. Some are more successful than others. I enjoy asking people for their favourites. They always seem to choose the ones I never would. ‘Oh no!’ I will say, ‘I stuffed up the leaf in that one!’
I’ve been drawing these flowers for House & Garden since March 2009 and I’m so grateful to Katrina Breen and Melissa Mylchreest for allowing me to play a very small part in such an iconic Australian magazine.
