Background:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I am very lucky to have the Moss Valley on my doorstep and I drive through it every day. I like to paint the swooping landscape and decorative arable design of fields defined by woods and dry stone walls. My direct response is expressed through washes of oil colour and impasto paint, drips and scratches to connect viscerally to the mood of landscape. It is important for me to draw and paint from direct observation as I work fast to describe the thrill of being in the landscape. I also paint in and around Sheffield, in fact anywhere that inspires me within driving distance with my car full of paint and canvas. I have been painting in and around Sheffield seriously since 1983 when I came to the city to study art at Sheffield Hallam. I achieved a first class degree and became an art teacher to support myself.

    1. Hi Del, nice to hear from you and receive your kind words. Glad to hear you like some of my paintings, I certainly enjoyed making them. I do sell my art and I’m preparing for ‘Art in the Gardens’ exhibition early in September. My art sells for £300 – £375 and I’d be interested in focussing on a particular view that you like. All the best, Craig
