Artist spotlight on Mawgan Porth…

Artists Kara Wilson and Dave Barker work from a studio in Mawgan Porth on the North Cornwall coast, and specialise in 3D stencils that are designed by Kara and laser-cut into premium MDF by Dave.

They are avid supporters of Free Art Friday Newquay, where every Friday local artists leave out work for people to find and take home, for free. To celebrate Valentine’s Day the pair planted these 12 red roses on Mawgan Porth beach. ‘As I recall, people behaved themselves and only took one red rose each,’ says Dave.

Find out more about Kara and Dave and buy their designs at Valentine’s Roses, available in red, white or plain, cost £7.50 each.
