Arts Council - Artist in Residence
Nene Park Trust was successful in a funding request to the Arts Council England (ACE) who are the distributor of arts-based National Lottery Funds. The money will be used for a diverse range of nature-based art activities with local artists and an Artist-In-Residence programme. Charron Pugsley-Hill will work on creatively capturing the beauty of the Park with installations, workshops and many other events until September 2017.
Charron is an internationally working artist based in Peterborough. Her work is primarily based on her passion for wildlife and the environment, following her professional career as a Wildlife Conservationist.
She is well known for her work on commemorating the centenaries of people, places and events from World War I. Her latest local work includes 'The Sky of Poppies,' which was displayed in Queensgate Shopping Centre to commemorate the Battle of the Somme from 1916.
Her work is often described as vibrant, intuitive and colourful. She often works on installations that include either the public's influence or as part of the installation itself.
