Bewick’s Place looks at the idea of home and place from multiple perspectives. The work was inspired from a visit to Cherryburn, a small stone cottage and farmhouse in Mickley, Northumberland near the south bank of the River Tyne. It was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick (1753 – 1828) wood engraver and ornithologist. Cherryburn now houses a small museum devoted to Bewick’s life and works in the main house, and a printing shop in the barn.
