My pattern for Flora is based on the many and varied wildflowers of the Hebrides. I first drew a pattern to express the notion of flowers and leaves. I then stylised it, taking care to preserve the impressionist effect of carpets of wildflowers covering the landscape. The Mountain Colourway depicts the lively autumn show of heather, wild thyme, moss and asphodel as seen on the moorland mountains. By contrast, the Glen Colourway features a quiet, peaceful scene where greens predominate and flowers such as wild violet and eyebright make silvery patterns.
