I’ve been reading/admiring the Hope Valley Journal since issue 1, so I am delighted that one of my drawings has been used to illustrate an article about Mam Tor in Issue 5. Here it is in my hands! It’s so beautiful. Amongst other delights, this issue also features breathtaking photography (including the cover photo above)Continue reading “PRESS: Mam Tor”

Hi! Quick update. Well, baby number 2 definitely isn’t ready for me to do any painting, or much else, just yet. I’m hoping to return to work properly in June (fingers crossed) but I am allowed to work a few more KIT days before then so I have opened my shop back up with longerContinue reading “January update”

Some of my sketches from Over Owler Tor – an imposing, fortress-like gritstone rock formation above the Surprise View near Hathersage in the Derbyshire Peak District.
An original Peak District landscape painting inspired by a rain storm over the Dark Peak, Derbyshire. I love the drama of the pink sky looming over and the bleak moor beneath, and the suggestion of rain bouncing off the gritstone escarpments. I created this contemporary Peak District landscape art using ink, conte crayon and watercolourContinue reading “SHOP: Storm over the Dark Peak”
A fresh Spring walk along Froggatt Edge from the Grouse Inn towards Curbar, a quick stop to sketch some of the lovely rock formations on Froggatt Edge, then back along White Edge.
An original Peak District watercolour landscape painting of Over Owler Tor from Little Moor near Hathersage, Derbyshire. I love the fortress-like feeling of this imposing gritstone tor and the windswept moor beneath. There’s a suggestion of the burnt oranges and ochres of the winter moorland grasses of the Dark Peak in the foreground. I createdContinue reading “SHOP: Over Owler Tor II”
A couple of sketchbook pages I forgot to post from February. These were drawn from Little Moor on the road from Ringinglow to Hathersage. The first is of Winyard’s Nick and the second of Over Owler Tor and the start/end of Millstone Edge. I decided to exaggerate the purple and lime green! It’s hard toContinue reading “SKETCHBOOK: Little Moor, Hathersage”
Two contemporary Peak District landscape paintings of Curbar Edge near the Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire. I’ve tried to capture the mood of this rugged gritstone escarpment in winter and the burnt oranges of the grasses and bracken on the moor below. I created this affordable Peak District landscape art using watercolour blocks on 300gsm smoothContinue reading “SHOP: Curbar Edge I and II”
