Sand and rock softly crunching underfoot, the path cuts through brittle, fragrant heather towards the distant outcrop. You clamber up and over the rough cold stone, squeeze through gaps, up, up to the top. Amongst the gnarled birch trees, weathered by wind and rain, you put one foot in front of the other until your toes touch the edge and you stop. And you inhale. And you breathe in the distant views.
Here’s a small selection of some of the Peak District inspired original landscape paintings available for sale in my online shop. These colourful little paintings are all approximately A6 in size (105x148mm or 4.1×5.8″) and look great displayed in a simple mount and frame. I can mount them for you – just select the mount option at checkout. Choose just one or hang a few together to really brighten up a dreary corner! Larger work and prints are available too, please have a browse!

Peak District landscape. Digital art.
Something a little different. I recently licensed my work to be used on a lovely locally-made artisan cheese.
Sophie and James from Cow Close Farm in Hathersage got in touch before Christmas because they wanted some new artwork for the labels for their Stanage Millstone cheese. Their old label was really nice but, when the time came to reprint, they decided they wanted something which reflected a bit more strongly that their cheese is handmade at their farm below Stanage Edge, and that the cheese itself is shaped like a Millstone, with a hole in the middle (which is an absolute stroke of genius). The artwork also had to work with their existing branding.
They had seen one of my sketches of Stanage which they liked, and I was able to rework it for them with the iconic image of toppled Millstones in the foreground.
The labels have now started going out on the new Stanage Millstones and I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
The cheese is delicious too! You can buy it online here, or from these stockists.
