AN ARTIST'S COUNTRY HOME

Artist Stuart Pearson Wright and musician Polly Wright moved from Hackney in East London to rural Suffolk with their son Wulfred. Their new country pile is part barn conversion, part national trust listed castle. The ancient ivy clad walls of the castle make for an imposing and dramatic backdrop to their artists hideaway. Pearson Wright is probably best known for his portrait of Prince Phillip, John Hurt in the NPG and his collaboration with Keira Knightly, but his favourite subject is his wife Polly, who features in various guises in portraits throughout their home. The house is filled with unusual and eclectic furniture and objects. In the grounds there is a beautiful but decaying potting shed, a gypsy caravan and large studio from where Stuart works.
