The Old School Muker
The Old School Muker is the largest art gallery & craft centre operating within the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North Yorkshire, showcasing a diverse and extensive range of work from over 50 independent artists and makers, all of whom share our passion for the iconic Dales landscape and wildlife that surrounds us in Upper Swaledale.
In The Gallery
A landscape artist he works mainly on copper plates. His work is extremely economical in that he usually uses only two plates and two or three colours to achieve a great range of tone and colour by the depth of the etch and by overprinting and fusing one colour with another. His images do not always relate to a specific place – he develops and works with an amalgamation of ideas recalled. The atmosphere exemplified by the landscape is the important factor.
