When I was ten ( a long time ago!) I went to a brilliant prep school in Dorset called Hanford which is near Blandford Forum. The school was instrumental in nurturing my artistic talent, both in the teaching of art and being immersed in a beautiful Elizabethan house surrounded by wonderful paintings.
They have asked ex pupils for donations of paintings, sculpture and drawings to an auction, online and in reality, to be held from the end of September. The proceeds will help fund an Art Barn to provide a leaching and exhibition space for the children. I have given them four of my paintings for the auction – I’ll let you know if they sell!
