Description Honeysuckles (Lonicera, /lnsr/; syn. Caprifolium Mill.) are arching shrubs or twining vines in the family Caprifoliaceae, native to the Northern Hemisphere. There are about 180 species of honeysuckle, 100 of which occur in China while about 20 native species occur in Europe, India and, North America each. Widely known species include Lonicera periclymenum (honeysuckle or woodbine), Lonicera japonica (Japanese honeysuckle, white honeysuckle, or Chinese honeysuckle) and Lonicera sempervirens (coral honeysuckle, trumpet honeysuckle, or woodbine honeysuckle). Hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers on some of these plants, especially L. sempervirens and L. ciliosa (orange honeysuckle). The name Lonicera stems from Adam Lonicer, a Renaissance botanist.(Courtesy of Wikipedia)
Steve Purnell, Bargoed, Wales Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement A truly eclectic body of work.
Steve is a self taught photographer living in the Rhymney Valley in South Wales. Whilst he has only taken photography seriously since 2008 he grew up with a photography background as his Father was an avid hobby photographer who shot many a wedding. Steve often used to help in those days taking candid shots through the day.
The purchase of his first digital camera in 2008 really inspired Steve to take up the art once again, especially when he discovered the wonders of photoshop in which he processes all of his images.
Steve has had great success with his photographs in recent years, entering many competitions and has taken several first prizes at the Bedwellty Agricultural Show in the photography section and winning 'Best Photograph in Show' on two occasions.
He has also had images published in some of the photography magazines.
Steve has tried to bring something new to the table with his art and has developed a style of producing unique images from smoke trails photographed from a smouldering incense stick. Indeed, immediately upon publishing his website featuring these images, he was contacted by actuallymag.com, an online arts and fashion magazine requesting that they be allowed to feature his work and this feature was published in January 2013 http://actuallymag.com/smoke-art-with-steve-purnell/
To increase the diversity of his portfolio, Steve has now introduced a range of digitally produced fractal images and has started to create a further range of fantasy images from these so make sure that you check the fractal gallery for some more unique designs.
His work is widely available to purchase over the internet, not only as art prints but also as canvas wraps, stationery cards, iphone cases, ipod skins, ipad skins, laptop skins, t shirts, hoodies, cushions and tote bags.
