Just one look inside Wisbech’s Peckover House National Trust property and local art student Lynsey French was inspired to create enough paintings and sculptures to fill her own first exhibition.

Lynsey (18), who studies art at the College of West Anglia, visited Peckover House for the first time last summer. She was so inspired by the history and architectural detail she saw that she set to work putting her inspiration into works of art.

“I was just overwhelmed by the detail,” said Lynsey, “I was so struck with ideas and just wanted to create these pieces based on how I see Peckover’s past as well as its present. And the pieces just seemed to flow.”

The exhibition will be held at Peckover House on North Brink, from Saturday May 25 to June. 19.

There is no extra admission charge for the exhibition.

Peckover House is open every day for the half term week, May 27 to June 2. For details call 01945 583463.
