Ilfracombe Harbour – Ilfracombe Museum
‘Lianne Harrison and I were thrilled to hear of this opportunity to showcase our work in this historical, colourful seaside town of Ilfracombe. We were both in awe of the Georgian and Victorian houses that line the harbour and are so prominent in this town. We were captured by the fishing boats and the history of the industry . Our aim is to bring this history to life using vibrant colours, shapes and textures to create a wonderful, inspiring collaboration to sit outside the local museum.’
