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.

Bridget is a full time painter and mixed media artist. She lives on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park in the seaside town of Whitby. Living in the small fishing port of Whitby gives Bridget the ideas and inspirations for her paintings, creating bold, colourful works, in her own unique style. Bridget has a wonderful collection of beach finds that she is incorporating into little sculptures and Shadow Boxes. These are an extension of her paintings using mixed media, driftwood, clay and found objects. Bridget’s work is fast becoming collectable both locally and nationally.
