I’m delighted to be part of the Letchworth Windows Project 2021
Digswell Artists from The Forge Digswell will be exhibiting work originally created for
‘In Our Garden’ : part of WGC100 Celebrations and Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020
The work will be displayed in shop windows in Letchworth from March 2021.
I am submitting In my garden 100 :
In Our Garden: Caryl Beach.
The work I have created for this exhibition relates to my own garden, I have lived in Welwyn Garden for over 30 years and my garden is very precious to me, somewhere to retreat and reflect.
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. I then started looking through my library of images and thought of selecting 100 images of my garden to create the thumbnail poster a sneak peek shown below:
