     Full of the Joys introduced two artists whose work I discovered for the first time in Gallery Tresco on the Isles of Scilly in May 2018. I was equally captivated by the wonderful sense of calm in Sophie Harding’s delightful and distinctive paintings, as I was by the energy and colours of Sara Bor’s landscapes and it was wonderful to re-unite them at the Byre Gallery.
