YORKSHIRE LIFE LANDSCAPE ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2017!!

As a Yorkshire lass, Linda is thrilled to have been awarded the Yorkshire Life LANDSCAPE PAINTER OF THE YEAR for 2017.

Born, brought up and living on a working Dales farm, Linda has lived close to nature all of her life.

Painting and sketching has always been integral in her life. Many moons ago she had four fabulous years studying Graphic Design at York culminating with a distinction in Industrial Art and Design. As a student when working on thumb-nail sketches for designs she frequently had her initial designs torn up by her tutor for putting in too much detail!…thirty years on she still gets lost in the detail – spending hours perfecting each part of the layout of her paintings before she even starts to apply the paint!

NEW Artist Jack Morris

Posted by on Jun 13, 2015 in NEW Releases, The Smithy Blog | Comments Off on NEW Artist Jack Morris

Jack Morris was born in Huddersfield in 1946, a typical Yorkshire man, full of humour and modesty. He paints using house emulsion paint acrylic paint and ink, which gives his paintings a simplicity with wonderful colours.

After leaving the Army Jack got married to Audrey and they lived in a small terrace house. Jack became a pattern maker a job he loved and did until he retired. He had always made things especially out of wood loved making and carving walking sticks, as well as dabbling in painting. Jack does not consider himself an artist, there are others out there who are more worthy of such a title, he is happy as he is.

Why emulsion paint? With money tight, Audrey would not let Jack buy frivolous fancy things like proper paint so Jack used old tins of emulsion and gloss paint, back then the colours were drab and dull, but he enjoyed the painting, nowadays the range of colours is limitless and now i can afford fancy paint I choose not to.
