Bridget was delighted to be asked to show three pieces of artwork in a forthcoming exhibition at Locking Castle Church.

They asked for artwork that would fit the title 'Hope' which is a theme that encompasses Easter and the hope of new life. Bridget chose 'In Pastures Green', 'Reach for the Light' and 'Spirit of Spring' as they offer hope in this way either by coming out of Spring or looking towards the light!

Shell Seekers Exhibition Celebrating Novelist Rosamunde Pilcher

Over 30 artists from across Cornwall are taking part with more than 60 pieces of original artwork for sale.


Why I wanted to exhibit


Inspiration is close at hand in the countryside around me so I am never short of a subject to paint. I am fortunate to have grown up in, and still live amongst, the stunning back-drop of the Somerset countryside. A second home by the sea in Cornwall provides endless additional inspiration. Over the years I have developed a special bond with Cornwall where I spent a lot of my childhood and still spend as much time there as possible.


After reading “The Shell Seekers” I saw similarities between my life and the main character as she lived in Somerset but longed to go back to her family home in Cornwall. She often dreamed of this so I have based my paintings on the following extracts:


Sapphire Seas ~ 'The road ahead curved white & dusty, and in the distance was a sea blue as sapphire'.


Sea Breeze ~ 'She filled her eyes with the blue of the sea and sky, then felt the salty wind; smelt seaweed and damp sand; heard the screaming gulls, the drumming of the breeze in her ears'.

Another Very Successful Made in Wrington Event in November 2013.

It was wonderful to have yet another very successful Made in Wrington event in November 2013. Thank you to all who visited the 'Made in Wrington Christmas Art Fest' and to everyone who took part.


The 'Pop up Tea Rooms' added a little extra and provided refreshment and a look at the map before the visitors continued along the art trail. I am already looking forward to the next event in 2014.....
