About the work

Dawn Stringer-Ruff - Pink Flourish.jpg

I create mixed media drawings and paintings that depict the beauty of flowers. I predominantly work with liquid acrylics and coloured pencils and love using bold and metallic pigments. I am inspired by traditional botanical art, however I add a contemporary touch through using backgrounds, geometric patterns and sometimes gold leaf. This adds a sense of vibrancy and personality whilst highlighting the individual identity and uniqueness of nature.
