I came to art / painting quite late in my life (after 30 years of ‘doctoring ‘). Contracting severe Covid with near death experience, and living with its complications for unforseeable future, gave me a different view on life. It gave me the opportunity to explore my other passions ( choir singing , piano playing , learning French as a 5th language , gardening, rescuing battery hens ,etc ). Beckenham place park is my favourite spot for daily walks , and it has very much inspired my love for botanical illustrations. I hope my paintings will inspire you to visit this park more often .
