‘I am a practising artist and grew up in Woodbridge. I moved back to Suffolk to learn to cast bronze and have worked here since then. I’ve been very lucky finding affordable studios myself and access to this resource has made a huge difference to my practice. Since moving back, I’ve encountered more and more artists moving to the region as a result of its affordability. Nevertheless, as the area became more popular, this is changing. I want to protect and maintain affordable studios because they have such a positive impact on a practitioner’s production and the development of their work.’ Alice has recently resigned as a Director in order to take up an opportunity in Australia.
‘I am a delighted to be director of Jetty Lane representing Just42. Just42 needs a new base for the charity to operate from so that we can continue the valuable work we’re doing – we currently work with about 2000 children and young people each year. It is exciting to be part of this project, to work collaboratively with others in the community to leave a lasting impact on not only children and young people but also the wider community of Woodbridge.’
