This post is addressed to all my fellow artists and friends of the art world.
Several days ago I heard dreadful news regarding a fire at St.Michael’s Studio, Bridport, Dorset DT6 3RR. A dear friend of mine, brilliant artist, and Past President of the Society of Graphic Fine Art, David Brooke, and his wife Caroline have a studio on the second floor. They still cannot get in to view the damage as it’s unsafe, but fear they have lost everything. Illustrator Paul Blow and his partner had a studio on the top floor and have lost a life’s work. We can all imagine what a ghastly blow it would be if we were in their situation.
Here’s a link to news about the fire:
