In a beautiful garden studio in Box you will find the illustrator and printmaker Susie Brooks. Susie has just finished building her garden studio which she describes as ‘a wooden studio with a terrace to sit and have a cup of tea. Not huge, but the commute is fine, and radio 4 is always on’. Sounds like heaven to us!
Susie has a degree in Illustration and a masters degree in printmaking
In Gastard you will find two well-seasoned art trail artists who have been taking part in the Peacock Arts Trail since 2013!

Claire’s designs have a style that is all her own the ceramics she creates revisit the memories and emotions associated with vintage ceramics
