I am incredibly fortunate to live in a beautiful part of England.
Sussex is a truly stunning county and at it’s heart are the South Downs, designated as an ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’
As a Contemporary Impressionist I am constantly inspired to paint by my surroundings.
Here are some of my favourite places to visit:
Wakehurst Place– The National Trust garden for all seasons managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.
Recently I was completely inspired by a fantastic tour of Farley Farm where the truly talented Lee Miller used to live. I absolutely loved it!! Utterly Magical!!
Sheffield Park one of the National Trust’s flagship gardens
Sheffield Park inspired the ‘water lily’ paintings in my Passion collection
I have yet to pay the Driftwood Open Garden in Seaford a visit but it is top of my list. From these photos I’m sure you can see why!
