Artists and Their Gardens

I like to travel and explore gardens and I have number yet to be visited on my bucket list.

As a passionate gardener and oil and watercolour artist, I find lots of inspiration in gardens and nature. Mine is an Australian bush garden that is designed to attract our native bees and birds. We have planted about 300 trees and now I’m on a mission to get even more rare and interesting natives, as I feel like I never have enough.

I’m about to paint a bunch of bearded Irises that were given to me a couple of weeks ago by my wonderful neighbour. Mine have not yet bloomed so I’m off to capture these wonderful display flowers in their glass vase. If you know of any wonderful artists and their gardens or gardens that inspired their paintings, please feel free to let me know so I can share them on this special page.
