How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

This artwork depicts the peace and joy that I found in my home garden during lockdown. I retreated to my vegetable patch daily, caring for my seedlings and harvesting an abundance of greens and herbs. Nature provided respite from the uncertainty and the opportunity to connect with neighbours over the fence and exchange lemons for spinach whilst savouring the human contact.
