Current solo exhibition.
'Three Miles from Home'
Bankfield Museum 7th October - 24th February 2024.
Open 10 - 4 PM Tuesday to Saturday.
' I grew up in view of the museum, the fourth generation to live in the two small cottages facing the fantastic vista over Halifax.
I have deep roots and have live around the hillside from my childhood home for the last twenty one years.
My home studio is the perfect base to watch the wildlife, the sunsets and enjoy the garden.
Shibden Valley was our playground.
Mum gave me a love of flowers and Dad gave me a love of animals, particularly birds so they all feature largely in my work.
I paint freely on top of detailed structured observational drawing, so the local architectural gems feature too.
As resident artist I will be holding free demonstrations and some bookable workshops throughout on various Saturdays.
Come down and have a chat.
