My family owned the Fisherman` Cot Hotel at Bickleigh Near Tiverton in Devon between 1963 and 1979 when it was sold to Sir Fred Pontin. During our time there we had many celebrities visit including Art Garfunkel, David Jacobs, George Harrison and others.

 Jim Edgar and his wife Jessie spent their holidays with us in the mid-seventies. Jim wrote the scripts for “Garth” which was featured in the Daily Mirror for many years. One day I asked him if he and cartoonist Frank Bellamy could do something featuring the “Fisherman`s Cot” and he very kindly obliged!

A4 and A3 Prints are available.


I was fortunate to have been bequeathed my Nan`s Postcard Album in 1987. In  there are 400 postcards written by my Granddad to my Nan in the early 1900s. From this album I have recently produced some beautiful Birthday, Greetings Cards, Calendars and Box Canvases.


Another brilliant day with our Beginners Art Class. Paula, Denise and Nicki did remarkably well as none of them had ever painted before! Well done to you all. Please see photos below.
