“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

Inspired by the word

Three artists taking part are:

Rose Hunter of ‘Proseprints’ whose unique hand-painted lino-prints are inspired by powerful poems by Devon poets and explore our relationship with nature, from childhood memories to environmental truths.

Kate Andrew who over the years has developed her unique style of painting using a combination of gouache and liquid acrylics to create her art. She often paints on reclaimed Cornish slate, is inspired by the natural world around her and loves using colour in her work.


Colin Burlton whose wood-carvings, & illustrations based on fables, nursery rhymes – and his own verse – illustrate and frequently amuse the viewer [The hare and the tortoise (wood carving), ‘Mary had a little lamb – an alternative version’ (verses & drawings) ….. & ….. Limericks based on Devon village names including one carving: ‘Cheery Tom fits Pane’ (Cheriton Fitzpaine!)].
