Hilary Thorpe's Sailing Trip

Isle of Wight artist Hilary Thorpe is currently sailing up the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. She is carrying her paints along with her and painting a selection of pieces as she travels, plus a travelling sketchbook.

Presently the yacht she is on is docked for three weeks in Long Island. Hilary is taking the opportunity for a brief return visit to Bermuda to catch the ‘Tall Ships’ race. Hilary spent 3 months on Bermuda in 2007 as Artist in Residence with the Masterworks Foundation. She will then spend a few days at the famous yachting town on Newport Rhode Island before returning to the boat in Long Island

Gulliver, the vessel she is on, will explore the islands between
Long Island and Cape before she returns in mid July.

Follow her newsletter on her website on and watch out for images on the Bermuda and East Coast of the States when the site is updated. Hilary will be exhibiting the work at an Open Studios event on the Isle of Wight ( and is also exhibiting at the Brighton Art Fair in October.
