Hi I’m Hilary
Co-founder of ArtMakers with Phil, landscape architect, researcher, photographer, organiser and art lover amongst many other things. I grew up amongst the dunes and beaches of the Lancashire coast, and have lived in many different parts of the Country but for the last 30 years I have kept coming back to north Devon.
Since 2016, Phil and I have been researching and writing about the issues faced by individual artists and other creatives working on their own or in small groups. ArtMakers is our response to finding some solutions. Early responses and support from local artists and makers to the idea have been fantastic and we are truly excited that we are now so close to launching.
Finally I want to say a special thank you to film-maker Jess Pearson without whom this would have been a far more difficult journey.
