Each Tree a Witness
28th September - 4th October 2023
I’ve composed this exhibition to give an impression of the changing seasons using as inspiration the characters who inhabit the landscape throughout the year; the oak, the bird, the fox, the dog. Like many, I’m conscious of the complexity and vulnerability of the natural world. The veteran trees are significant to many and I paint and draw their portraits as if they were venerable persons. The creatures who live among them, or run past them, show us that time moves differently for trees.
I accept commissions. My illustration work is published in books relating to gardens such as Chatsworth and Monet’s Garden, and authors include Sir Roy Strong.
