Gorgiano Studios – About us
Painting Holidays Italy – Gorgiano Art Studios are run by husband and wife team Caroline and Andrea.
We moved to Camerino from Bethnal Green in the East End of London, about 8 years ago. We already knew what we wanted to do. I know my way around an easel and Andrea is pretty handy with a frying pan. It is a great privilege to be do something which uses both our skills.
We had a check list, I didn’t want anywhere unbearably hot, Andrea didn’t want anywhere North – we both wanted ‘pretty’, neither wanted ‘touristy’ – so Le Marche fit the bill.
Having looked for two years, at Tenuta Gorgiano we finally found what we were looking for – stunning views with not too much sky, plenty of foreground interest, close to a medieval town, enough room for accommodation and studio – I could go on. Of course it took a while to get it all sorted out, but we have now been up and running for 5 years. We love what we do and we would love you to come and join us.
