You are welcome to visit my fine art gallery, where I paint, teach and display my work. You will find a range of my paintings, prints, posters, books and gifts to browse or buy. My paintings are a response to the beautiful and often stark landscape of The North Pennines – from broad views of the moors and fells, to more intimate views glimpsed through windows in abandoned dwellings. The landscape is littered with the scars of mining and quarrying and I am producing paintings of places as they are slowly being reclaimed by nature. I am amazed at the number of abandoned dwellings I keep finding and they are a rich source of inspiration.
The gallery is open seven days a week. Places on my painting and drawing classes are occasionally available and commissions are welcome.
