Artist in Residence, Clare Willcocks

We are delighted to introduce Clare Willcocks as the festival’s Artist in Residence for 2023.


Clare is a Northam-based artist and illustrator whose practice includes live event illustration, fine art oil and watercolour painting, and teaching workshops. Clare’s personal work is inspired by the North Devon coast,

ranging from familiar scenes to representational wave paintings. Clare will be live painting at events throughout the Festival.

Clare will also be leading the Appledore Sketch Walk at the Festival on Friday 15th September, 4pm-5.30pm, and Sip 'n' Paint, a fun and creative social evening at St Mary's Hall on Friday 22nd September at 6pm-8.15pm.
