A CAN­NING Vale artist is throw­ing open the doors to her stu­dio and gar­den in the hope it can in­spire oth­ers, as well as raise a few dol­lars for an or­gan­i­sa­tion close to her heart.

Jude Scott is a “pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cate” for arts in the com­mu­nity and in ad­di­tion to reg­u­lar classes teach­ing wa­ter­colour and draw­ings, has de­cided to open her stu­dio and gar­den for an en­tire week­end, al­low­ing vis­i­tors to wan­der through the grounds and ask ques­tions about the art­work or the sur­round­ings.

Ms Scott said there were a lot of sim­i­lar­i­ties be­tween paint­ing and gar­den­ing.

“You get started and the time just flies,” she said.

“It is so re­lax­ing and re­ward­ing see­ing the paint­ings progress and plants thrive and bloom.

“The gar­den is so spe­cial to me as my hus­band and I only had one or­ange tree when we moved to the prop­erty; now it is a jun­gle of na­tive plants, wa­ter­wise and trop­i­cal plants.

“I de­cided to have an open gar­den and stu­dio as, to my mind, both com­ple­ment each other so beau­ti­fully and I find that most peo­ple al­ways ap­pre­ci­ate look­ing at beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings and art­works.”

She said pro­ceeds from the gold coin en­try would be do­nated to Fre­man­tle Ro­tary.

“They are such a mar­vel­lous group of in­spir­ing vol­un­teers who work tire­lessly for no per­sonal gain,” she said.

Ms Scott’s open stu­dio and gar­den will be on from 10am to 4pm, Novem­ber 25 and 26, at 6 Spata Lane, Can­ning Vale.
