I was recently commissioned to paint the Lemon Tree Trust Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. I was very excited when I saw the garden; a large lemon tree planted in the middle, surrounded by flowers and olive trees. The trust supports gardening initiatives in refugee communities as a way of restoring dignity, purpose and cultural identity. After walking around the garden and looking at various angles and viewpoints I found my favourite and got to work. It was a wonderful day and I met some fantastic people working for a wonderful cause.

February took me to Venice for a couple of weeks, a painters paradise which left me feeling excited and inspired despite the rainy weather. Venice has a charm to it that never really fades for me; the light in Venice is unique, and having not been before in February I discovered that I really loved the challenge of capturing the rainy reflections and muted colours. On one of my first days there I was lucky to find a spot to paint under the arches in Piazza San Marco. Here I had a wonderful view of the Palace and was particularly drawn to the geometry of the subject and muted greys and pinks that lay before me. The painting is shown below.
