About Stella

As one of the founder members of North Devon Arts in 1998, I have worked in The Arts in North Devon for many years, first as a practicing artist, tapestry designer and photographer, then moving into Arts Events organisation. Events include: Art Bazaar in South Molton; a variety of community tapestry arts projects - Ilfracombe's Landmark Tapestry, The South Molton Charter Celebration Tapestry; community kneeler projects across North Devon; 'Sheep in the Shops' a community arts project working with artists and various groups and schools in and around South Molton. 'A year in the Life of the Sheep Fair Field' was a two project documenting South Molton's Sheep Fair Field, with photography by myself and creative writing by Mary Stephenson, along with interviews and sound recordings. This body of work now forms an important archive for the town. For seven years until 1st October 2019,  I have owned White Moose, a contemporary fine arts gallery in Barnstaple with a partner. We promoted local, national and international artists, mentored selected emerging artists, organised curated exhibitions, projects, talks, events and workshops. I organise the annual Art Trek Open Studios, running for the last sixteen years across the wider North Devon area.  Working with locally based artists and makers, encouraging these rurally isolated artists to engage with and sell directly to the public, raising their profiles and helping them develop relationships with their fellow artists. Each year I produce a brochure, update the website and promote the current artists and makers taking part. www.arttrek.co.uk
