Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

When people ask me what kind of artist I am, I never really know what to say. I am self taught and constantly exploring techniques and styles. My work is inspired by the coast and nature. Having spent 4 years in Staithes I am currently travelling around the coast of Britain in a motorhome ( mobile studio) hoping to bring the diversity of our wonderful coastline into my work. My work goes where the inspiration takes me.
