“I’ve known these woods since I was a tiny girl as my Grandfather was the gardener here at the ‘big house’ before it became National Trust and I remember following him around the bee hives in the walled garden and collecting the honey. Since moving back to Helston 18 years ago I have walked the woods around Loe Pool most days and know not just the well trodden routes but the old wild paths and ‘hollow ways’ that so often feature in my paintings. Although I love the trees in an…y season, this is my favourite time, early May when the Woodpeckers tap, the Bluebells start to bloom and the Cow-parsley ( or Queen Anne’s Lace, as my Gran called it!) sparkles in the hedges. ‘The Promise of Spring, Penrose’ is the first in a new collection of Spring paintings.”
