Although Evelyn was born in Reading in 1906, by 1908 the Dunbar family had moved to the village of Snodland, in the lower Medway valley, and thence to Rochester in 1913. Thus Dunbar’s formative years were spent in Kent, ‘the Garden of England’. Gardens, orchards, pasture and arable fields, all the rich abundance of the Kentish landscape, are at the core of her work.
