Anita Bowerman with guests at Rudding Park event

I was very flattered to be invited to talk to guests at a business event at the prestigious hotel at Rudding Park, near Harrogate, North Yorkshire last June.

Rudding Park contacted me to say that they were putting together an evening for around 40 local business people, with the theme being nature, and felt that my artwork was a perfect fit.

Before dinner, the Head Gardener at Rudding Park showed the guests around the hotels’ beautiful Kitchen Garden which has over 100 types of herbs, salads, edible flowers and fruits, many of which are heritage varieties.

In preparation for the event, I went to the Kitchen Garden, found a picturesque viewpoint, and used some herbs from the garden to create this acrylic painting.

Both the original and limited edition prints of this painting are available to buy here on my website.

Following a delicious two course meal, I gave my 20-minute PowerPoint presentation covering my background, Harrogate art gallery and studio, types of artwork and how I create them as well as my art commissions.

After my presentation I gave a short demonstration showing how I use twigs, leaves and herbs to paint with, as I painted the beautiful view from the window of the room.

Each guest was presented with one of the limited edition prints of my painting of the Kitchen Garden and they then looked around an exhibition of my artworks.

The whole evening was a tremendous success and I would like to thank Mike Woodcock of advance strategic & creative marketing, my marketing services provider, for all the hard work he put into the event.

Finally, here are a couple of comments from guests who attended the event:

"Sincere thanks for a wonderful evening. I just loved the garden tour and was blown away by Anita’s art."

“The whole evening was so thoughtfully organised, from the tour of the Kitchen Garden to the talk and demonstration from Anita, who I’m now following on Instagram!"

I have nearly completed my year as Artist-in-Residence at RHS Garden Harlow Carr. I love painting outside and immersing myself in nature, which painting scenes around the gardens at Harlow Carr has given me the opportunity to do. I have painted using fallen twigs, leaves, moss and other natural materials.
