Botanical Queen Mary’s Woods (steel grey)


This artwork is really stunning, combining my photograpghy, photoshop and painting skills. It derives from the Queen Mary’s Woods, a short walk from where my studio is. I have given the wildflowers a backdrop of steel grey as I think it works really well in interiors and it changes tone when different lights are on. Try this painting with it’s coordinating cushions for a stunning interior designed looking home.



Jo Sharpe’s Contemporary Botanical Paintings

This contemporary botanical streel grey painting and prints of Queen Mary’s Woodland forms part of my botanical paintings range. These paintings have been developed over time using creativity, innovation, several artistic skills and the latest digital technology.

These paintings have developed from my botanical prints. This collection started  in 2016 with a series inspired by Cornish hedgerows. This series of digitally manipulated art prints are really beautiful and innovative and quite different from my paintings. Recently I decided to develop these by turning them into large paintings. Therefore, my contemporary botanical paintings are digitally manipulated photographs, that have been printed onto canvas and hand painted with several layers of acrylic or oil paints. Sometimes I hand paint over everything and other times I just paint the background. Often 3 coats of paint needs to be applied.

These paintings are original works of art that alongside my Bespoke Art Cushions cushions look fantastic in interiors. Using my textile design background I have created a coordinated range of home furnishings that match this gorgeous painting that will make your home look interior designed. I love beautiful interiors and I am happy to accept special orders changing the size and colour to suit clients tastes.

Queen Mary’s Woods

Queen Mary’s Woods are situated in Carshalton Beeches and are a place I visit regularly on one my many walks.  They are particularly beautiful in the summer as Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers have done a marvellous job by planting many species of wild flowers and grasses. Queen Mary’s Woods have inspired several other artworks. These are: Seed-heads gathered from Queen Mary’s Woods and The deer in Queen Mary’s Woods.v
