Following a tradition of patronage of the arts started by writer and traveler Dorothy Una Ratcliffe, Acorn Bank continues a programme of activities with contemporary artists to continue Dorothy’s legacy, bringing her story to life.

Now in its second year, the 2016 Dorothy Una Ratcliffe fellowship has been awarded to artist Freya Pocklington. The three month residency will start in late February and is part of a larger programme of activities across National Trust properties that celebrate the legacy of Beatrix Potter, marking the 150th anniversary of her birth in 1866.

Freya Pocklington is a London based artist who grew up in the South Lakes. Often working on a large scale, her drawings combine layered ink and pastel to give them a distinctly painterly finish.
