A busy September

Its the first day of October and I 'm not sure where September went. A busy month for me at Coughton aswell as other arts events for me outside of the residency.

Last weekend I was involved in an exhibition  in North Devon called 'Arts for Life' a charity event for a children's hospice that I was very proud to take part in.

During the month of September I have been delighted to introduce other artists to the delights of Coughton Court and the stories of the women and their home. I really enjoyed a warm late summers day with the group, talking, walking, sketching and sharing ideas.

The women of Coughton  are never far from my thoughts and I have completed two new pieces. The first being my final study on the story of Katherine Vaux.

My most recent piece has been a response to the story of Mary Anne Acton.
Mary Anne was barely 13 years of age when she was married off to her 63 year old uncle. I cannot image what this young child would have thought of this prospect but the fact that she hid under a table says quite alot.
