Dorothy Pavey



Dorothy Pavey specialises in watercolours of gardens, country waysides and woodlands. Her interest in plants and flowers gives the focus for her work and inspired by the beauty of their setting she paints these subjects in their natural habitat or in gardens, creating a sense of place and atmosphere.

Watercolour is the medium she has chosen as this allows her to capture the delicacy of plant life, along with a sense of movement and light. Her distinctive style combines detail with fluidity, and the result is one of beauty and serenity. Inspiration is largely drawn from the Cotswolds where Dorothy lives, with its abundance of wildflowers contrasting so pleasingly with the mellow natural stone.  Other special places she likes to paint are the Lake District, Devon and Dorset, and South Africa.

Having formerly been a teacher Dorothy began full time painting in 1994.  In 1999 she was elected a member of The Society of Botanical Artists and exhibits regularly with them in London.  Most of her work she sells through solo exhibitions and she has a mailing list for those interested to attend.  At other times visitors are most welcome to make private appointments to view original paintings at her home/studio.
