Latest news: OPEN STUDIOS 2024

Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th May, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June

It is some time since I last took part in Cornwall’s Open Studios but I have decided to take the plunge and do it again.

So for this year’s Open Studios, you are invited to my ‘Studio in the Sky’ at the top of our Victorian home in Helston.  It is well worth the several flights of stairs to reach the calm beamed attic space with its view overlooking Godolphin Hill where I paint and write.

Studios and workshops are very personal spaces and I believe that everything that inspires me: art books, poetry books, fairy tales, shells, stones and fossils, should be with me here in this room where they feel like old friends.   When you visit you are welcome to browse the space, drink tea or wine, eat homemade cake, and take in the atmosphere whilst seeing a painting in progress on the easel.

On the walls and around the studio there will be lots of framed and unframed originals, my photographs (my new passion), signed books, prints, and cards to view or buy.

Just around the corner from me in Station Road, you will find the lovely Ria Poole.  Her studio and home are a delight to visit and will be filled with her energetic mixed-media landscapes and seascapes that fizz with colour and expression.  Two good reasons to visit us in Helston this summer!
