monthly drawings on 20 x 20cm canvas panels. Connection to nature. I live and work at Unstone Grange retreat centre, Derbyshire with a 5 acre garden. I work to maintain the place- me and nature, we support each other. The drawings we make are freeing, interesting, helpful, beautiful, minimal, spiritual, for me. I grow flowers for colour in the garden and use them to make drawings.
