A STUDENT was so inspired by a visit to Peckover House at Wisbech that she created an entire exhibition dedicated to the history of the building and gardens.
Lynsey French, 18, who studies at the College of West Anglia, was inspired to create paintings and sculptures to fill her first solo exhibition.
Lynsey visited the National Trust property for the first time last summer.
She was so inspired that she set to work immediately, putting her inspiration into works of art.
“I was just overwhelmed by the detail,” said Lynsey, “I was so struck with ideas and just wanted to create these pieces based on how I see Peckover’s past as well as its present. And the pieces just seemed to flow.”

The exhibition will be held at Peckover House on North Brink from Saturday May 25 to Wednesday June 19.
It is a completely fresh take on a 300 year old house whose story Lynsey sees as still developing and evolving.
