My studio is located in the Old Stables on the Trewidden Estate, just outside the boundary of Trewidden Gardens, one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall which is open to the public most months of the year. I was, and still am fascinated by the contrast between the wildness of the woods and hedgerows just outside the Garden walls and the carefully managed environment of a garden.
