Newlyn-based artist Vicki Norman is showing her collection of paintings featuring traditional Cornish luggers and coastlines, with a percentage of all sales donated to the Cornish Maritime Trust.


Drawn to Penwith by the prospect of sailing and painting the beautiful West Cornish coast, oil painter Vicki Norman moved to historic Gwavas House in Newlyn in 2022 with her partner Mark Branigan. A serendipitous encounter with a skipper for the Cornish Maritime Trust started Vicki on her sailing journey with the local charity who preserve historic wooden boats and the skills needed to sail and maintain them. Finding her sailing time rich with visual inspiration for paintings she soon became the artist in residence for the Cornish Maritime Trust.

The exhibition combines coastal scenes and skies with studies of the boats and their crew to create an overall impression of the experience of being a member of the trust.  Vicki’s painting skills are based firmly on the traditional methods of the Newlyn School painters and she is delighted to use them to capture the beautiful boats and glorious Cornish coastal colours in a series of timeless works that bridge past and present.  Vicki also hosts painting holidays and courses.

Meet the Artist on Friday 5 July, 3.30-5pm and painting demo on the lawn at 10am.
