I am delighted to be one of 20 artists selected by Hall For Cornwall for their Carousel Horses Project with my painting for my exhibition piece ‘Sterren ~ A Star For Cornwall’ on display in the Carousel Cornwall Exhibition Of Ideas at the HFC later this week.

Sterren is of course Cornish for star, and I think quite an appropriate name for a Carousel Horse for Hall For Cornwall, home of the stars.

Painted in my usual colourful and bold style, and drawing on my Cornish heritage, Sterren is a large bright Cornish Gold star, surrounded by a carpet of sparkling stars and planets all set on a backdrop of deep blue to signify the colour of the Cornish sea all complemented with contrasting shades of blue.
