Statement of intent

I live in a rural area. My garden is full of natural and cultivated plants. In spring and summer these plants present a lovely sight. I chose these plants as the subject for my panel. The question was how to produce a panel that was original, reflected me and stood out in a subject that is very much in fashion.

The inspiration for this panel is from two sources. For over thirty years I have been a professional radiographer and amateur photographer, which are similar and compatible skills. As a result I visualise subjects from their exterior and the structures within that are concealed by the surface. I combined my skills and vision with inspiration gained from how the 18th century botanists recorded plants using charcoal, pencil and paper.

The result is my simple panel entitled: "The plants from my garden, an alternative view".
