An artist has completed her second commission at a Seaton residential home - with an open day happening to showcase the work.

Sara Perry already completed a wall mural in the garden of Netherhayes Residential Home, and has now brightened up the home’s interior with her latest work.

The home’s manager, Trudi Marsh, said: “We wanted to have a themed area which is a great focal point for the resident.

“We decided the garden was a good place and Sara took up our offer to paint a seaside picture postcard.

“It’s brilliant and raises lots of conversation with the residents.”

The latest piece has been specifically designed for the homes interior to give it a bright and cheery feel.

The main focus is a six-foot countryside scene of sun flowers and field mice with additional butterflies and bees adorning the corridors and around the doors.

It has already caused a stir and one of the residents has named one of the mice in the picture ‘Cedric’.

Sara, who was born in Seaton, has been involved in the creative arts most of her life - although the painting aspect took precedence only this year.

She has since then been showing and selling her work online, at the Art jubilee, Artisan Market, Savooni Art Space and ‘Amber Home Of Colour’.

Netherhayes has an open day tomorrow (June 13) for anyone wishing to view the artwork.
