about

Francis Hewlett was an artist, sculptor and lecturer. He was born in Bristol in 1930. He studied at the West of England College of Art until 1953, when he went on to attend the Slade School of Art under the teaching of Claude Rogers and William Coldstream. In 1958, Francis was appointed the head of painting at Falmouth Art School and held this position until 1981. During this time, Falmouth gained a worldwide reputation for its high standards, and is now recognised as a leading university. Upon retiring from teaching, he was able to focus solely on painting, his family life blossomed and he exhibited work throughout the UK. On the 4th of April 2009 Francis Hewlett had a stroke. He had been suffering from Vascular Dementia for some time, and is now in a nursing home.

That’s the end of the story. Or is it ?

Seamas Carey is a musician. He sings songs and plays the accordion. He has worked with the likes of Rogue and Kneehigh Theatre, Underdog and The Busketeers. He is the second of Francis’five grandchildren. Seamas has written a selection of songs about the house that now only his granny lives in. These songs are a heartfelt yet funny account of how a house can change, and if needs be; a precautionary life raft when dealing with Alzheimers and Dementia…With the aid of a slide projector and screen (oh and his accordion), Seamas will sing his songs in cafés, art galleries, lecture theatres, day care centres, village halls and music venues, throughout the UK. Helping us to remember how lucky we all are to have a granny!
