Yesterday I had a wonderful day out visiting Broomhill Sculpture Gardens and meeting Rinus and his delightful team at Broomhill Art Hotel.
Rinus made some time and showed me around his stunning sculpture gardens and we found a space where my piece is going to be installed on the 19th May. I was very impressed by the number and variety and quirkiness of the sculptures on show. Such a delight. I feel very proud to be part of the selection this year.
After all these exciting impressions we had a wonderful lunch in a light flooded window bay of one of the many charming rooms at the hotel, which are again full of art. Rinus and Aniet have been collecting art all their life, and the eclectic mix of paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture and found objects reflect their positive, quirky and busy outlook on life!
Julia is the first contestant to have installed her sculpture! Well done, Julia, it looks fab!
