The Garden studios The Lawn St Leonards On Sea
Who could fail to be seduced by Nick Snelling and Adrienne Hunter's Art studios set in their leafy garden in The Lawn . Brushing past various fruit trees , crab apple , pair apple and established almost abandoned shrubs,walking through what I thought was an art installation which turned out to be Nick Jennings extraordinary Japanese influenced pots( so sensitively laid out on the lawn ) and there glinting through the trees were their studios.

Nick's unfailing love of the sea has always given him strength . His paintings show a complete understanding of his passion for the ever changing tides, moods and colours. A true artist who plays , experiments with glazes and succeeds, oblivious of the age we now live in. His studio is a chaotic indulgence, an unintentional art installation every beam of recycled wood every squirt of paint an indulgence . I loved every inch of it and understand and admire the challenge he obviously went through in the past two years.Wonderful!!!!
In their busy eventful life they still find time to open their house to foreign students and also run a bed and breakfast. Their truly bohemian background in their enchanting house in The Lawn is a bonus for any visitor, who could wish for more. Their link is www.airbnb.co.uk.......elegance by the seaside
