I've always loved being in the garden. When I was a child I would sit amongst the fruit bushes at the bottom of the garden and be lost in my imagination as the dappled light played across the grass. Now I have my own garden, and an allotment and a poly tunnel. I am still amazed by the miracle of watching a seed grow and tending it until it blooms or fruits. In my art I try to capture some of that miracle, and the creatures I share my outdoor space with.
