GAILA ADAIR PAINTINGS 2018
'I have enjoyed a hands on career in designing gardens, learning new crafts, including bricklaying, carpentry, pebble mosaics and consider the process akin to painting in three dimensions, in all weathers!¬†
Drawing and producing visualisations and artist impressions have been part of the process and the painting has carried on in the background but has in the last few years¬† developed in a style that experience, knowledge and understanding of the landscape has given me'.¬† Gaila Adair.
