“ I decided to visit many of the areas described in Du Maurier’s novels. Seeing these places through her books and her imagination and then using the way I work to connect with the landscape has been a very interesting process. Her fascination with Cornish history has also provided a sense of the landscape of the past. Working on Bodmin Moor, time stands still where only the sky or light seems to change or Polridmouth Beach on a stormy morning with the sky a pinkish grey and the rocks black and menacing, images of Daphne Du Maurier characters would come to mind. For me she has put into words the landscape of Cornwall.”

Please join us at the gallery for an evening view with wine and canapés, on Friday 5th July from 6pm. The artist will be there and there will be a chance to see her brilliant sketchbooks, which will take your breath away!
There is also a hard backed book published to compliment this exhibition which contains many pages from her sketchbooks and the paintings that those sketches inform. It costs £25.00 and can be brought with a few clicks from our web site or from the gallery.
