Ep 67 is the first episode from our whirlwind Scottish tour.Β 

Discussing her love of art, we are joined by Nicky Wilson - Curator, Collector and Co-founder of Jupiter Artland.

Nicky studied fine art at Camberwell College London followed by a masters in sculpture from the Chelsea School of Art. On graduating she won a British School of Rome Sculpture Scholarship.

Her sculpting practice took a hiatus whilst she raise her five children but she having moved to Bonnington House, a grand 17th century manor house nestled into 100 acre estate just outside Edinburgh, she began thinking about how to bring her love of art into the landscape.

Nicky & her husband began commissioning artists to make large-scale landworks and outdoor sculptures for the estate and in 2008 Jupiter Artland opened to the public.

Nicky discusses her role, dreaming of sculpture and that sometimes the struggle is what makes something rewarding.
