Lilly Allen is a freelance illustrator and water colour artist from the Isle of Wight, England and she stayed with us during March 2017. She spent countless hours just sitting and painting where ever she could find the perfect perspective of what she was going to paint. This could be on the side of a mountain, on the sea shore or in the warm comfort of the studio using a photo.
She also decided to collect photos of every house in the village. She was captured by the range of colours and shapes considering each house as an individual with its own character. She greatly enjoyed the solitude that was possible during her residency. Being able to step away from normal life and focus on things that you have not been able to give time to until now.
