Keep Off the Paths features playful stencilled messages against an abstract background representing a map of the paths running through Westonbirt Arboretum. This painting was inspired by a desire to encourage visitors not to treat the arboretum as a formal garden, where they might be expected to keep to the paths, but rather to get close to the trees, to walk among them and gain as much as possible from the experience of being in nature.


The stencilled messages on this painting are all prompts to engage mindfully with the arboretum. Inspired by my time exploring Westonbirt, these messages can also be extended to time spent anywhere in nature, and as a encourage to take the time to spend time gaining the benefits that natural spaces can bring to our mental health and well-being.
