A Window into the Wonderful World of Cleethorpes

News |

Iconic scenes from Cleethorpes have transformed one of the resort’s landmark buildings after a local artist was tasked with a unique challenge. 

The skills of talented artist Sarah Palmer, who runs her business The House with the Blue Door, were called upon by Cleethorpes Library as part of a creative project to redesign one of the building’s main window panels.

Caroline Moorby, Arts Development Officer, Lincs Inspire said: “The redesign was a great opportunity to be creative and celebrate everything we love about Cleethorpes. Sarah’s sketches are so colourful and distinctive, they make us pause to appreciate the beauty we have on our doorstep. We’re delighted with the outcome.”

Depicted are The Ferris Wheel, The Mouse & Moon, The Boy with the Leaking Boot, The Pier and of course Cleethorpes Library, all pictured behind paddle boarders enjoying the sunset.

I was so happy to work on this lovely project to use the window in Cleethorpes Library to celebrate some of the landmarks of the area. It was great fun to work with the time lapse while I worked on the painting, and I hope that my work brightens the front of the library building.
