The artist explains her lock down campaign ‘Paint My Meadow’.
“I paint landscapes and one of my favourite subjects are wildflower meadows. When lockdown was announced in Spring 2020, I had to cancel all the trips I had planned. This was so disappointing as it coincided with peak flowering time and meant I was unable to make preparatory sketches and photos.
A friend came up with the clever idea of using social media with the hashtag #paintmymeadow, asking people to email me with photos of their local meadows. The response was astounding, and it enabled me to make a series of paintings of some of the most glorious meadows, most of which I had never heard of, and were too far away to have visited in person.
I began the series in the spring of lockdown and completed during the summer months. Despite the challenging times, the entire project has been a joy and I hope that comes across in my paintings.”
