This artwork sprang from drawings made in the kitchen garden of a historic house in England, where heritage plants were being cultivated. I made a drawing that spread across six A5 pieces of heavy watercolour paper, using pen and ink, then pastels and coloured pencils to emphasise some of the curving forms of a flowering zucchini plant. The panels were then rearranged to form a concertina book. The imagery took on an abstract feel, but to me still retains the memory of that kitchen garden.
