girls & the pantiles

One of the things I love about being at my brother and his family’s Surrey home is the immediate burst of inspiration I get. From the ever-changing landscape to the three overgrown greenhouses in the wooded area, my heart always swells with excitement! How could I not integrate my work with the nature and architecture the Pantiles has to offer? It was only natural that I do.

the third greenhouse is the emptiest and the most overgrown. this one resists leaving. she hides in between the panels but i finally manage to wrest her from the panes
