Over a period of ten years from 1990 to 2000 I exhibited my paintings of seed pods in nine solo exhibitions.  I produced over one hundred paintings and sold many.  The majority were watercolour on paper but several towards the end were large oils on canvas.

I worked from the many specimens I found in different locations and countries.  I was inspired by these amazing structurea with complex chambers and dispersal systems for distributing seeds.

Above all I often observed 'personality', in an anthropomorthic sense, in the forms and came to regard my paintings as icons which I often embellished with gold leaf decorative borders or frames.
