About the Book
This is a book of paintings based on many year's of knowing the Lake District but only recently seeing it afresh through the words of Wordsworth's poetry. After 18 months of visiting Wordsworth's favourite places the resulting paintings were hung at Wordsworth's last home, Rydal Mount near Ambleside in Cumbria. A must for any fan of the great man's poetry - uplifting, haunting, moody and beautiful. The paintings are matched throughout the book with the poetry which inspired them.
I paint pictures are write poetry about my life and where I live. The Gallery - www.mashamgallery.co.uk - is the main outlet for my work. Most of my paintings are watercolours but I also work in acrylic ink and paint. I also teach painting and drawing. Most of my books are the result of working on themed exhibitions but I also supply galleries in Stamford, Richmond, Pickering and Oxford.
