Sarah Palmer – Illustrator
I’m Sarah, the face behind The House With the Blue Door.
I’m an artist and writer as well as the creator of soulful art journaling techniques and workshops. The House With The Blue Door is the name of my quirky wooden chalet on the Humberston Fitties in Cleethorpes.
I have worked as a teacher, lecturer and journalist, but in September 2020 when I was made redundant I realised that I’d been given the perfect opportunity to do what I’ve wanted to do my entire life; work as an artist.
Everything I’ve done in my working career is now informing my artistic practice. My work based around sketchbooks, watercolours and ink. I learned calligraphy when I was a child and ink pens inform my style and my writing – I love adding a calligraphic flourish to my paintings! I also enjoy collecting my work together in book form, which I did with my Cleethorpes Sketchbook – a collection of my paintings and sea-inspired quotes that celebrate the beauty of this part of the north-east coast.

Tom Milner – Recording Engineer
Tom Milner is a recording & mixing engineer and music producer based in Louth. He currently works from and operates The Pump House Recording Studio which he established in his hometown in 2014. Tom started in the industry as a musician but soon realised his passion for recording — an art form which he says allows him to be equally as creative (and a bit geeky too).
Since opening, the Pump House has collaborated on hundreds of projects varying from local bands, audiobooks, podcasts, voice-overs, and live sound productions. The building was once a Victorian gas pumping station and retains many of its original features and character. Now home to a state-of-the-art recording studio, The Pump House offers a unique and comfortable working environment with highly skilled professionals on hand for any recording project.
