Joyce Gascoigne/Merida Drysdale

Merida is the custodian of the shell work, paintings and sketches by her mother (Joyce) from the 1940s onwards and, principally, with the shell decorated material from the 1960s onwards. Cornwall and Bermuda inspired Joyce, a senior diplomat’s wife, and much of her material is now displayed at Pitcombe outside Bruton. We have provided a body of material for Joyce’s forthcoming biography as a successful artist (exhibitions in Washington, London and Devon) and have enjoyed Marina’s entertaining company and rich collection of material.
