The Lower Meadow by Alan Wilkes
Alan Wilkes spent a number of years being responsible for store layout and merchandising for blue-chip retailing companies in this country and in Europe. This experience of visual presentation, together with a passion for art and design, flowers and gardens, led him into garden photography. He was able to capture the essence of a garden's individuality, experimenting with perspective and creating abstract shapes and layers of colour. His award-winning work for both private and public gardens was regularly published in gardening and country magazines, and he was proud to be a member of the Professional Garden Photographers' Association. He died in early 2013, and the royalties from the sale of these cards are being donated to The Prince's Countryside Fund.
