A talented Bridlington artist has completed an ornate wooden sculpture inspired by local poet Anne Mullender.

Liz Barton’s woodcut depicts various aspects of Bridlington’s community including the Town Hall, the fishing industry and the sea.

The woodcut depicts similar images to those mentioned in the poem ‘In Praise of Bridlington’ which caught Liz’s imagination.

A woodcut is an image carved into a flat piece of wood, from which prints can be taken.

Liz created the woodcut as part of a two-year A-Level course at Bridlington College and earned an A* grade in this year’s examinations.

Liz said: “I decided to make part of my project about Bridlington because it’s got a lot going for it, and both Anne’s poem and my woodcut reflect a positive image of the town.”

Prints of the woodcut are available at Gallery 49 at 1 Market Place as are copies of Anne’s poetry book ‘Spreading My Wings’ featuring the poem ‘In Praise of Bridlington’.
