One of the greatest influences on my artistic practice comes from my garden in Wales. A few years ago I was lucky enough to find Tŷ Llwyd, a 17th century cottage with an acre of garden nestled in the foothills of the Cambrian mountains in Mid-Wales. The existing garden was on a steep slope and largely on rock, so I decided to terrace the ground, making three level spaces for a garden, a playing field and a wildflower meadow. The significant earth-moving involved gave me the perfect opportunity to create a perennial garden from scratch. Now, eight years on, most of the foliage and flowers that I use on my ceramics and collagraphs come from this garden. I find it the most exciting place to be, changing as it does from month to month as can be seen in these photos of the garden from spring to late summer last year.
