Friends of Fowey River Watches

Alice Scarlett Design

Alice Scarlett is a local artist from Fowey currently studying at Falmouth University. She specialses in precise highly detailed watercolours, taking primary inspiration from the Victorian era. 

Every piece and study has a very Cornish aspect to it, something to help promote the Cornish language, heritage and wildlife; not just to local people but something that also has great appeal to our many visitors to the county.

​All original watercolours are produced following weeks of photographic study of Cornish bird life.
