Hanbury Hall delights

My creative practice has been inspired by National Trust gardens for the last few years and as a result I’ve had a number of people suggest I visit Hanbury Hall – finally I got round to it at the weekend. Despite the poor weather it was a delight to discover all the pockets of gardens, each carefully considered, and demonstrating the wide variety of formal and informal planting the National Trust excels at.

Armed with my sketchbook and camera I gathered plenty of inspiration for new prints and will definitely be back later in the season.

Its also a fantastic building inside and out. I dashed around the inside and a particular wallpaper caught my attention.

All in all, I left feeling excited about making new work again having spent so long preparing for my solo show at Tinsmiths, opening later this month… now where did I put that lino?
