"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.
