Take a stroll through the garden with Michelle Jank

MICHELLE JANK Micro joys I love......I wish...... I crave.... I dream....

What's the one thing that you do every day at the moment that brings you joy? 

Every day without fail, in the one hour allowance for exercise, I am in the garden or the parks. Nature has been the saviour for me during these challenging times. I have tried as best I can to bring the outside in… orchids, flowers and other green plants fill our apartment. This brings a lot of joy. I am dreaming of adding a floral painting by Laura Jones to my little art collection.

Where is your happy place?

In the garden, sun on my back, listening to the birds, head in the flowers.

Are you a routine person?

Routine helps a great deal. The days are so amorphous that having a little structure helps. I live for my daily walk in Hyde park, our communal garden and in the deserted streets. It’s like being in a surreal movie set.

What sparks your creativity?

I have been revisiting my art and fashion books I have collected over the years. I can’t wait to get back to the galleries and see some inspiring art. People on the street, my friends, my wonderful clients, the brilliant creative teams I work with and my home town of London inspire me. It will be so nice to see the world come to life again.
