Each garden we explored in Kyoto was unique. And I am only now focussing on my time and experience within each one.

Beyond everything that I felt and saw whilst strolling through them, was the feeling of calmness and peace. Even to sit in a restaurant or cafe and have a small garden at the back was like a breath of fresh air. An escape from the crowds of urban life.

My favourite two were at The Heian Jingu Shrine and the Okochi-Sanso Villa. I’m still finding the words to express how they make me feel. I know that visually they will impact my thoughts and I will see many of the colours, shapes, philosophies etc appear in my paintings.
