Artist inspires with open garden.
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.
