Outside of his studio in Walmer is a small and deliberately overgrown garden which, for the same twenty years, has also been an important source of stimulation. It is a garden taken over by carefully nurtured seeds and cuttings that he avidly collects, multiplies and divides that has become an alternative source of  study and inspiration to the downlands of Kent and riverside sites in London. Here he records these microcosms of constantly changing light and colour, growth and decay with the same vigour as an energetic landscapist rather than the placid admiration of a botanical artist.
