Maggie Matthews, The Nature of Home

26 June - 20 July 2019

Maggie Matthews

The Nature of Home

“I first walked the length of Cot Valley 30 years ago, and I thought I’d found paradise, the valley ends with a tiny cove, as so many others do, where I immediately took a quick dip in the sea. I knew I’d found my forever home and over the years I’ve worn out many pairs of walking boots. The footpath is where my adventures begin, rambling through overgrown sea hedges, glimpsing the beautiful beaches below. Quickly sketching clifftop flower shapes or making collections of seed pods, bringing nature into my home. All my special finds play their part in connecting me back to the landscape. Living here in Cornwall has given me the opportunity to visit exotic gardens, rugged moorland and an incredible coastline. You don’t have to travel far to find inspiration and season after season I get to explore my beautiful home and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. I have taken root in this place and nature has become my retreat and a breathing space.”
