Going by ‘artistintheshed‘ on her website, Mary says the shed has become “an extension of my own art work and has actually become a painting in it’s own right”.

The inside of the shed is painted white to make the most of reflected light coming in from five large windows.

Head judge and founder of the competition Andrew Wilcox, reflected on this years entrants saying “We’ve been absolutely blown away by the incredible, imaginative and innovative sheds entered into this year’s competition.”
