'In Our Garden' at New Maynard Gallery Welwyn April 2nd 2020


Digswell Artists are creating new work in response to Welwyn Garden City’s Centenary. The group exhibition will be launched on April 2nd 2020 with a private view at 8pm at The New Maynard Gallery Campus West Welwyn Garden City. The exhibition continues until May 16th.

The work I have created relates to my own garden, I have lived in Welwyn Garden for over 30 years and my garden is very precious to me, and somewhere I can retreat and relax. I am so fortunate to be visited regularly by squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs, deer and a myriad of bird life. My latest visitor- a greater spotted woodpecker! I have documented the wildlife and changing seasons over the years. Initially I made mono prints of some stunning shrubs growing in my garden, together with my horse chestnut tree, which has grown over the years from a single conker planted by my children in 1987. A word of warning : they grow taller than a house!

This leads me to my recent work for the exhibition, a thumbnail collection of 100 images of my garden- to represent the 100 years since the creation of Welwyn Garden City.
