I remember painting from a very young age and I loved painting. From as early as I can remember I painted, drew and made things. But by a twist of fate, I didn't get formal training in art. In 1997 I moved to a flat with a garden and I found my second love. Plants and flowers. I researched how to grow, what to grow and everything I could about gardening. And I started to document my efforts with my camera. Several gardens later, and a move from London to Wiltshire and I found myself with a huge country garden with beautiful views and a skyline to die for. I was entranced with the beauty of nature and the changing seasons. Making a garden is like painting a picture and dare I say more complex. A garden is ever-changing and with the elements of sight, sound, touch, smell and taste to play with. But then there is time to add to the mix. Time to grow and change. In 2000 I combined my love of plants and gardens with photography. It was my way of sharing the beauty I saw every day. I have now been a garden photographer for 20 years. In 2009 I was strongly drawn to paint and I took up my brushes once more. Nature, the changing seasons, the colours and combinations of colour, the sense of joy, exhilaration or relaxation that plants offer is the influence for my art. In 2018 I rented a studio in my home town of Frome. And from here I continue to explore the colours of nature, describing the essence of a place with gestural marks and clear colours. From semi-abstract flower studies and landscapes from memory to experiments in abstraction using colours found in nature. My style is gestural and bold with references to memories of my days with nature. It has been a long time coming, but Mary Wesley wrote her first book when she was 65 years old and it was a best seller. The Chamomile lawn. So never say never. And when I look back everything fell into place as it should. ​ ©Lynn Keddie 2020
