My studio is at the Middleton in Teesdale Auction Mart, where, fascinated by this theatre of rural community, I began drawing regularly, live at sheep and cattle sales. My drawings or ‘Mart Art’ made recently on a tour of the main Swaledale ‘Tup’ sales at Middleton, Kirkby Stephen and Hawes can be browsed or bought here, in the Mart Art Shop. Useful local terminology: Tup = Ram and Yaw = Ewe
My Eco Home Build with Hempcrete
I was born in Sunderland but moved south in the 1970’s.Now, 40 years on I have come ‘Back to the North’ to Teesdale where I am about to start building an eco home/studio, using Hempcrete. My blog will document this journey.
