Helen Riches

If I could blame anyone for my fingers that constantly itch to draw it would probably be my mother. I was going to join her on trip to Marrakech, Morrocco last weekend with some friends (definitely one of our favourite cities to sketch!) But I'm in San Francisco until September,  I will be careful not to complain..

She just sent me a couple of quick biro and water colour drawings she did out there, which I love so much I thought I'd put them up on here!

Just to provide some background info: My mum (Helen) works as a Garden Designer and Writer, and contributes to Gardener's World as well as running her own Garden Design business, formerly known as Front Door Flora. She's previously worked as a Graphic Designer and Freelance Illustrator.. Oh and did I mention be a full-time mother?!

Needless to say she's a big inspiration, but I'd like to think she copies me too ;)


  1. Awww! Thank you! We missed you loads on our girly trip- but maybe you would have got bored with all the garden visits. Mumxxx

  2. Just occurred to me... Our last visit inspired 2 projects.... your French Connection one and my Summer pots from seed feature for BBC Gardeners' World: (see the brightly coloured pots)

  3. Your mother is very talented. I actually thought these drawings were yours.
