'Collect Cumbria has given me sleepless nights and made me proud to be Cumbrian. With limited space and so many talented art workers the selection process was very difficult, but the insomnia was really due to the excitement at the richness of talent across our inspiring county. Christmas shopping is easy this year!' Rachael Matthews, artist, author and curator
