'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.
