A sketchbook page of Romilly Saumarez Smith's Garden for Eileen Hogan's artist residency at the Garden Museum.
In 2016 Eileen Hogan, artist and professor at the University of the Arts, was the Garden Museum artist-in-residence. As the Museum was closed for renovation, Hogan came up with the idea to be an ‘artist-not-in-residence’. She wanted to create ‘a virtual garden museum’ through exploring green spaces in London. She asked people to nominate a London green space writing ‘This could be a private garden or a public space, and it might even be a remembered space, for example, or somewhere glimpsed from the top of a bus. It could be at ground level or it might be a balcony or roof terrace and it can be related to any time of year.’
