Trebah is a sub-tropical garden in Cornwall which has a stunning coastal backdrop. In 1931 Trebah was acquired by the Fox family who built Glendurgan Garden in Cornwall. It was first laid out as a pleasure garden by Charles Fox who paid meticulous attention to the exact positioning of every tree. During World War II, Trebah was used for military purposes – the assault on Omaha Beach in Normandy was launched from Polgwidden beach at the foot of the garden. In 1981, Tony and Eira Hibbert bought Trebah as their retirement home and it was opened to the public in 1987. The Hibbert family gave the house, garden and cottages to the Trebah Garden Trust, a registered charity, to ensure that the garden could be preserved for future generations. This painting is of the white bridge which crosses over the stream as it winds it way down to the lake and is a favourite place for wedding couples to pose for photos of their special day. It measures 50cm x 50cm and has been painted on a narrow canvas with painted sides so is ready to hang or can be framed. It comes with a certificate of authenticity.

About this Artist

I am a Cornish artist who for many years has painted in my distinctive naive style. I love colour and enjoy portraying the patterns I see in nature and all around me.

My paintings have travelled even further and now live in the USA, Canada and Europe although many of course still
