Venue #12 – Jill Fenwick

Just round the corner on Station Road, you will find our garden designer and illustrator…

Jill Fenwick

All aspects of Jill’s work will be on show, ranging from drawings from life to images of private gardens featured on TV. Take a glimpse of her beautiful, green-roof shed too!

Jill’s genre of creativity is unique on the Peacock Trail, and it’s been fascinating finding out how she works:

“I design individual gardens for private clients throughout the South of England. The architecture of the house, the surrounding views (whether good or bad) and the client’s brief, all influence my work.

Designing the planting areas is like doing a watercolour painting – the shapes and colours all have to balance each other out. Inspiration comes from many sources such as the countryside, travelling (especially Japan), sculpture exhibitions and flower shows.”
