“I’ve al­ways had a need to live in the coun­try­side and Kil­ham is so quiet and peace­ful. The Yorkshire Wolds are a cre­ative hotspot. I’d of­ten drive past David Hock­ney in Woldgate pre­par­ing for his Royal Acad­emy ex­hi­bi­tion.

Nearby we also have Bridling­ton, where I used to run a gallery. It’s a beau­ti­ful coastal town with one of the most com­plete Ge­or­gian high streets in Bri­tain. I love ex­plor­ing the an­tiques and vin­tage shops.

I find his­tor­i­cal houses re­ally in­spir­ing – we’re spoilt for choice in East Yorkshire. My favourite is Bur­ton Ag­ness Hall. It has a won­der­ful gar­den with un­usual plants you can’t find any­where else. Some are over seven feet tall, so you feel like a child when you’re walk­ing through them.”
