Sussex based artist Gill Bustamante has won a commission to create a personalised paintings after appearing in an episode of the BBC One series ‘Home is Where the Art Is’, Series II. The series started on 6th July 2020 and is to run for three weeks. Gill’s episode was scheduled to transmit on BBC One on Tuesday 21st July at 15:45. Gill recommends the series very highly due to the amazing quality of the artwork it features by British artists working in many different mediums.  

As well as being in a Manchester film studio where she met the presenter, Nick Knowles, part of the program creation included a BBC film crew coming to meet Gill in Forest Row where she lives. She then took them to the Ashdown forest where she showed them how she makes sketches of the beautiful Sussex countryside and then turns them into paintings.

Gill could not say more about the outcome of the program before the episode, so as not to spoil the surprise but we can now reveal the brilliant news that Gill won the commission!  

Home owners Jenny and Rob from Surrey chose Gill's painting for the beautiful colours and reference to their family and cultures. If you missed the episode you can see it here on BBC iplayer.
