These works are inspired by both private and public gardens I have visited around the world. Gardens are rich in forms, patterns and colours and have always inspired me to paint. My first visit to Geneva, Switzerland lead me to the lake where I followed the shoreline until I came to an intriguing tunnel. This lead magically into the botanical gardens. In Lausanne I left the train and walked directly to their botanical gardens which I didn’t even know existed. I have always been drawn to these places of inspiration.
