Clare Galloway is a Scottish painter who has made the medieval, Southern-Italian town of Guardia San Framondi her home. In so doing , she’s made the town itself an extension of her artistic endeavours, breathing new life and creativity into the community and raising awareness of the place worldwide. She’s also managed to buy and single-handedly restore her home there, inspiring others to repair and resurrect other buildings in the town. We visited her in Guardia San Framondi and asked her to tell us her very unique and fascinating story.
