Why Radish?

Rare Radish seed packet
The story is short and sweet!

The inspiration for the name came to me from a vintage seed packet in my collection. As I flicked through an album of old postcards and photos suddenly the page fell open on a vintage seed packet which caught my eye. Radishes are pretty and pink but when you take a bite they are hot and peppery. Not at all what you expect. I love this element of surprise which seems to fit perfectly with my art. Expect the unexpected with Rare Radish!

Rare comes from all the curios and treasures I use within my art. They are curated by me because they are rare and unique.
