What makes a garden so appealing that makes me want to create an artwork for posterity? Wandering in a flowering garden is an experience, the colours, the immense diversity, the complex design aspects such the combinations of form, texture and patterns are some of the main aspects. There is no end to the inspiration!! Whilst painting from life and recording the array of possibilities, one is also seduced by the fragrance, the birds and insects , the whole scenario appeals to our senses. A garden is like a sanctuary.
This collection is mostly inspired by my own garden during different seasons or a particular place that I visited else-where and was enticed to make the scene a permanent reminder of how I felt at the time. Fleeting moments of delight and the element of surprise is what I intend.
