Cresswell, Christine

I love gardening and growing plants of all types.
After doing the Master Gardener course at the University of Melbourne (Burnley), my children gave me a botanical illustration course at the Royal Botanic Gardens (Melbourne), where I found I loved painting the plants as much as growing them!
Living in Margaret River I particularly enjoy capturing the vivid colours and complex shapes of the local wildflowers and love to show the different stages of a plant’s life cycle. My paintings include a diverse range of subjects from well-known exotic plants to wildflowers that grow only in the Southwest of Western Australia.
Watercolours are my chosen medium because I love the vibrancy and luminosity that they allow – many of our wildflowers are absolutely stunning!
