Kim Wilde is working with artist John Dyer and the team at Falmouth Art Gallery and Gyllyngdune gardens to help to judge the entries to the 'Global Gardens' art competition and exhibition.
Kim is featuring the project on her official web site Wilde-Life.com
"Encouraging our children to appreciate the natural world around them is a wonderful way to stimulate and excite them, as well as educate them. I have encouraged both our children into the garden since they were toddlers, treating the garden as an extension of our house.
Out there in the sunshine we have played, planted and painted together, the garden serving as a family space to spend quality time with each other…time for us all to smell the roses in our otherwise busy lives!
I am really excited to see the paintings for the Global Garden project, and delighted John asked me to be involved. We loved having him stay here a few years back, where he painted a series of stunning canvases of our beloved garden. I have a lovely photo of John, Rose (5) and Harry (7) crouching over one of John's paintings, which hangs in Rose's room as a reminder of an inspiring few days in our summer garden."
