Cornwall residency award …

I’m so pleased, today I got the news that I have been awarded an artist’s residency at Brison’s Veor, Cape Cornwall, for 2014!

A wonderful location, the house is the furthest west in England and situated right on the cliffs looking out to sea and the rocks that give the house its name. It has been run solely for creative residencies since the 1970s.

It’s also very close to the tin mining area I’ve recently been painting, which will be the main focus of my work whilst I’m there.
I’ll have it to myself for two weeks… two weeks of concentrating on painting, sketching, exploring. It will be my first residency.

    • Thanks so much Mandy. what a pity you couldn’t make it. I’m really pleased the ladies enjoyed the demo so much 🙂 I’m taking part in open studios next May (in my new rustic studio!), so perhaps a chance to meet up then, if you can make it? How is your own art going?
