Rebecca Harper, Digging up the Dirt

Rebecca Harper, Digging up the Dirt

Rebecca explores the emotional and heightened relationships Lockdown. How this time has enabled a refocus on wellbeing and encouraged people to appreciate local green spaces like never before. Through semi fictional characters she shares the experience of finding mental space and solace in the garden, injecting colour, planting flowers, sewing seeds, pruning hedges, attracting birds and bees. Contributing to the re-growth of the planet a little from home by enabling the garden to flourish. Nurturing for our environment can also remind us to nurture one another. Rebecca studied at the Royal Drawing School and Turps Art School.
