I have recently been looking back at some of my old designs (I was a wallpaper and textile designer for almost 20 years) and I was thinking about shapes and pattern when I was painting this. It is more abstract than some of my other paintings and I love the strong sense of design that comes through. I like the playfulness of the black spots that could be seed pods and I tried to achieve a perfect balance of colour and tone using simple colour blocks as the backdrop to the more literal plants in the foreground.
