The Dead house studio, Portland

The Dead house studio is 50m from Chesil beach.  I have arrived in the past with a storm raging on the beach.  The sound of the waves breaking formed a deep drone through the night.

It was originally a fishing and boat store, occasionally usedas a mortuary during the 19 century after shopwrecks left bodies on the beach.

Judith rents the studio to other artists and friends – otherwise it is her personal studio.  Ranters lodge is next door.
