Inspiration on the Cornish coast

We have just returned from a glorious camping trip to Maker Heights campsite, near Cawsands in Cornwall. It was a fabulous campsite, just a toilet block and a field where campfires were permitted, perfect! The kids had a wonderful time playing in the trees and walking down to the beach on the coast path and us adults played with fire and had a relaxing time. The site is an area of outstanding natural beauty and was used as various military garrassons until recently, due to its unparalelled view of the coastline and Devonport ship yard across the river in Plymouth.  They have various enterprises underway on the site, artist studios, local businesses and annual music festivals; an interesting place well worth a visit.

The coastline there was amazing and we had some great days on the beach in Cawsands. I intend to use this coastline as inspiration for some new pieces (I have lots of ideas already), unfortunately I dont have the time right now as I have 3 commissions on the go and lots of shops to restock………watch this space for some future work coming out of this lovely trip!
