These stunning trees grace Mustique in all their glory during the dry season and the hillsides are dotted with splashes of bright orange, but for the rest of the year they appear almost dead with just their large bean-like pods hanging, until they too drop to the ground, splitting open and scattering their seeds.
Passing below Palmyra House one afternoon I was lured into the garden by the most spectacular tree in full bloom and I couldn't help but cut a sprig off and take it home to sketch.
Once I understand the make-up of a plant in all its detail, such as how many petals it has and how they fit together, how the bud blooms into a flower or how it attaches to the branch, it makes it easier to do a loose water colour in silhouette.
And from here the fun begins, creating a repeat pattern and building up the colours and shading for the various print layers.
Then it's time to decide what fabric to print it on and in which colourway, and finally what garments to make.

The Mustique Mule is a well recognised sight and sound on the island. These little beach buggies, which are known on the island as "mules", are the only form of motorised transport here. We think of them as workhorses as they are used for everything you can think of!
