From paintbrush to pen: Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch on words and objects I am someone who often has my nose in a book. Not unusual, of course, for a writer. But in 2012 I decided to think about doing this quite literally when I collaborated with the Ceredigion Art Trail open studio event in west Wales. Every August, artists open their homes to members of the community for ten days, enabling the public to come and see what artists get up to the rest of the year. I decided to join in and offer my home as an exhibition space. Why would a writer do this? you might wonder.
