"Where are you from?” is a question I am often asked. A short form reply is “England,” although my footsteps have taken me to many fascinating countries. I took the opportunity to explore the arts, archeology, language and customs of the people who welcomed me into their homes and hearts. I have many interests and believe the exposure to other cultures is reflected in my art, writing, wood carving and mosaics. One constant in my life is garden design. From the cold, damp chill of England to the hot, red earth of the Middle East, I have coaxed the most stubborn flowers to grow. Our landscaping at Cheshire Acres is based on English garden design, a work in progress that currently extends over two acres.
