Mini garden series

Whilst in confinement, I found solace and peace in my garden. It was a constant source of inspiration. As with many artists, we found all doors closed: with many events cancelled, art fairs, salons, galleries and residencies postponed,together with the bad news of Covid, we all have reasons to be concerned and worried. However, I never let myself down. I never stopped doing my art, I embroidered to my heart's content until the sewing machine eventually broke down.

As with many artists, we found all doors closed: with many events cancelled, art fairs, salons, galleries and residencies postponed,together with the bad news of Covid, we all have reasons to be concerned and worried. However, I never let myself down. I never stopped doing my art, I embroidered to my heart's content until the sewing machine eventually broke down. I was very productive, working a some very large pieces and now this mini series by popular demand. My sewing machine, now repaired, thanks to my engineer husband, has been like a best friend, always there performing its magic and my favourite water colours like my godsend to brighten the sadness. Doing my art is like a therapy and that is why I am at my studio everyday. It transports me to another plane,my imagination travelling to a positive place. At close proximity, my garden filled with joyful colour is a place of peace and surprise every time I cast my eye onto a bed of annuals. The poppies, all types, oriental, wild field poppy and Californian,mingle together with catmint, borage, for- get- me- not and campenulla, making it like a silk tapestry. Hope you enjoy the collection with artistic license and I want them to bring hope, joy, peace and light to anyone who admire them or acquire them.
