Jane Darke has worked in Cornwall for over 30 years. Her partner playwright Nick Darke (1948-2005) was a Cornishman. She trained and works as a painter, has had three films broadcast on BBC Four and is a published writer.
Since 2008 she has collaborated with Derbyshire sculpture Andrew Tebbs producing films and community projects. They founded St Eval Archive at Tregona Chapel, near Bedruthan on the North coast. Tregona Methodist Chapel was built in the 1830s of mud. It has been renovated with help from Cornwall Community Foundation. It’s now used for exhibitions, archive events, community meetings and art workshops as a not for profit organisation and project funders have included FEAST and Arts Council England.
