Spurn Point – Artist in Residence

Alice was Artist in Residence at Spurn National Nature Reserve, East Yorkshire during 2012. Over a six-month period Alice engaged with and responded creatively to the unique landscape of Spurn.

The residency culminated in an exhibition weekend in the old lighthouse at Spurn on 21-23rd September and was followed by a gallery tour throughout 2013.

An 80 page book was published to document the residency with Alice’s images and diary extracts and is available to order here.  A slide show documenting the development of the project can be viewed here. More information about the project and the gallery tour can be found on the residency blog.

This project was in partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and was supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

  1. Hi Alice,
    I’ve been following your residency and would love to order a book. I can pay with my PayPal account if that’s okay. Just let me know how to proceed.

    Thank you! Jennifer

    • Hi Jennifer. I can send a paypal invoice to your email address. The postage rate of £3 is for within the UK and I think you’re in the USA (I hope I’m right) therefore it will be £5 postage. I hope that’s OK. Best wishes, Alice.

  2. Alice,
    I have been following your work for awhile now and was happy to see the book “Textures of Spurn”! I would love to purchase one and can pay via paypal.

  3. Hi Alice
    I would love to buy one of your ‘Textures of Spurn’ books. I am happy to pay via Paypal.
    Do you have any Tidemark books looking for a good home? I would also be interested in one of those.
    Books + mark making = Heaven!

    • Hi Consuelo. I’ll send you an invoice for the book via paypal. I do have Tide Marks books available. I am hoping to get them up o the website soon so you can either wait for that or I can send you a list of those available and then detailed photos of any you might be interested in. Thanks, Alice
