"Living Paintings" Garden Chelsea Flower Show.

About this project

In 2004 I was commissioned to produce artwork as the centre piece for the“The Living Paintings Garden” at Chelsea Flower Show 2004. The Living Paintings Trust brings to life a range of art forms and children’s books for the blind and partially sighted. The packs contain three dimensional images to touch and feel, alongside evocative CD`s and Braille text. This garden was the finale for the Trust’s history of gardening pack. The artwork took the form of a three panel spatial divide.
