Charles Burns Art Studio at Mays Barn

COMING FROM a fine-art background, my art studio is central to my work as a silhouettist. Without the endless drawing , painting and paper cutting , the silhouettes could not exist. Mays Barn is my physical studio, retreat and place to work. It’s the setting for all my endless silhouette research and provides the setting for both the opening and closing scenes in Silhouette Secrets.

Once a year I open Mays Barn Studio to the public as part of the Caversham Arts Trail.
