    Calyx Calypso is an original abstract painting by Philippa Jeffrey. Jeffrey has always loved all things botanical: her paintings are an abstracted take on traditional illustrations of flora and fauna. Philippa Her love of colour, pattern and mark-making give her paintings a contemporary and original edge.
    Acrylic paint on board, all Philippa’s paintings are signed and original.
    Canvas options are also available by commission.

    Philippa Jeffrey studied Fine Art and History of Art at Leeds University in 1996. Philippa then moved to London where she worked as a Fashion Producer for Conde Nast Publications. A couple of years ago Philippa returned to her roots and the ex-editor became an artist, now painting from her Oxfordshire studio. Using botanical prints as a starting point, Philippa has developed a unique visual language, celebrating layers of colour, pattern and mark-making. Wychwood Art are proud to showcase a series of textured, painterly landscapes – abstracted botanical paintings. A visual candy as opposed to an overly verbalised aesthetic. A decade of exposure within the world of fashion and magazines has undoubtedly informed Philippa’s vision – you only need to look to the catwalk or glossy journals to see a similarly calculated approach – a deliberate and conscious decision to use a particular colour, a specific form. She uses water based paints and a combination of board and canvas.
