PHILIPPA JEFFREY

England, United Kingdom

"Abstract, botanical paintings, patterned layers celebrating colour"
Using botanical prints as a starting point, Philippa has developed a unique visual language, celebrating layers of colour, pattern and mark-making. Painterly landscapes – abstracted botanical paintings. A visual candy as opposed to an overly verbalised aesthetic. A decade of exposure within the world of fashion and magazines has undoubtedly informed Philippa’s vision - you only need to look to the catwalk or glossy journals to see a similarly calculated approach - a deliberate and conscious decision to use a particular colour, a specific form. She uses water based paints and a combination of board and canvas. She will never tire of pattern - stripes & spots are her go to and pink & green are generally found on her palette.

"I pour over old botanical illustrations and loosely sketch flowers and plants... not that you'd necessarily know it when you see the finished article! there might only be a suggestion of a flower or a landscape"

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"transporting my large paintings! it always seems to rain when it's installation day! I've had to invest in a lot of plastic sheeting (to last forever I might add;) and my husband is a pro at boxing them up or attaching them to our car ;)"
