“I was inspired by my own garden. Although I love gardening, I always feel that I am falling behind, as there are simply too many things to do. In this print I have enlisted the help of animals that visit my London garden– foxes, frogs, hedgehogs, even parakeets – to help me with all the jobs that need to be done.”
