Synopsis

A year in the life of a garden. From the stillness of winter, unfurling through spring and summer to the contentment of autumn, this imaginative interpretation of a specific space - a twelve-acre garden within an urban university campus - exposes a secret oasis, full of surprises. This book presents the personal vision of the Artist in Residence at the Harris Garden in the University of Reading. Jenny Halstead captures the seasonal changes, portrays the stages of its renovation, and celebrates its enthusiastic workforce, especially the many volunteers. Accompanied by a history of the garden and an account of its restoration, these paintings and sketches memorialise a place in time.

She is well-known and widely admired, nationally and internationally for her draughtsmanship, her modelling of detail and her use of colour. She is a Fellow of the Medical Artists Association of GB and a Member of the Pastel Society UK.
