Susan Deakin

On exhibition in the Garden Room Gallery, Dartington, from August 3 to October 15, 2016

Sue says about her work:

My drawings and prints reflect a long connection with the countryside of the South Hams, home for most of my life.  Attention to the ‘local’ has been fundamental.  Close observation and a deep appreciation of what goes on in my garden and allotment result not only in plentiful, varied food, but also a nurturing of the spirit and the soil.

In the cultivation of food plants, I find aesthetic delights that move me to forge links between the roles of gardener and artist.

My work uses many media, sometimes using plants themselves, to present a small part of the natural world for the consideration of the viewer.
