This artwork was created originally for the wallpaper design Tropicana featured in the French Collection. It is inspired by the tropical birds that started to appear in wallpaper and textiles during the 1700's. Like foreign fruit, birds with all new patterns and colours were coming from all around the world inspiring artists and designers alike.

I wanted to create a floral that captured their excitement for these new species. I also noticed lots of the designs from this era had a tropical feel to their flora.

I chose delicate fan palms, ferns and crested parrots. I wanted this design to be more modern so I stripped it of any colour, painting it all in white. I think this makes it more elegant and versatile.
