This year Arran has continued to work along the south coast focusing on a small lighthouse she discovered on the Solent. This started a theme in her work using other lighthouses found around the south of England working in drawings and painting. Ideas were then developed through Printmaking using and mixing various printing methods and collage she was able to explore scale, texture colour and mark making. She intends to continue her exploration of the south coast and the New Forest. Arran will be sharing Susan Kirkman's studio during the Open Studios, both for Marlborough in July and West Berkshire during the weekends of May. The two Artists fill 3 studios with a large selection of their work in various media and scale. The visit also gives the chance to view Susan's beautiful 2.6 acre garden.
Visitors Notes: Witcha Cottage lies between Ramsbury and Membury. If approaching from Marlborough, take the Ramsbury turning from Marlborough Green. Leave Ramsbury via Oxford Street (left-hand side of The Bell ). After about one mile, reach Whittonditch Crossroads on the B4192, where the studio is signposted during Open Studios. If necessary, phone for directions. Do not rely on satnav to bring you all the way.
