Lucie Cooke

Hi, I’m Lucie! I am a freelance designer and illustrator. I live and work in Clitheroe, Lancashire, UK. I was born here, I left, then I came back! I live with my husband, feral toddler and our one eyed cat, Pod. I love leopard print, breton stripes and red lipstick. I’m a cat lady, a coffee drinker and a foodie! Oh, and I can’t keep plants alive.

With a BA Hons (First class) degree in Contour Fashion, my career path has taken me from working in fashion and lingerie design for some of the UK’s biggest high street names, to pattern and graphic design, and in more recent years, to illustration.

I am experienced in a range of illustration techniques and styles, from hand drawn line work, to watercolour painting, to digital design and window illustration.

In addition to this, since 2019 I have been illustrating the windows and walls of homes and businesses across Lancashire. What started as a favour for a friend, quickly grew into one of the primary focuses of my work and is becoming the thing I am best known for. With 5 years experience of freelance illustration, window art came naturally, I just saw glass as a different type of canvas.

Dermod Ruddock

Colour and light, and the landscape – that’s what inspires much of my painting, influenced by all kinds of things; not least artists such as Kandinsky, de Vlaminck, Derain, Matisse, Cezanne and the Scottish colourists, and my experiences as a graphic designer.

Lighting is a vital ingredient too…the drama of a Scottish storm, the vibrancy of siesta time on a Greek island, clear blue sky over the North Wales coast, or the deep shadows cast as evening falls over the Lancashire fells.

Every painting captures a moment in time – each is colourful, exuberant and bursting with life – each is special…

Sam Grindley

The process of making art is, for me, an attempt to try and reconcile myself with my own memories; to depict, translate, recreate and comprehend them. The memories I focus on in particular, are those relating to my childhood, family members and places of importance to me. A key trigger for igniting memories are photographs and I see them as a snapshot of the untold and a stepping stone to the exploration of my own conviction. During the course of producing each artwork, I often find that I am striving to both remember and forget.

Patrick Troughton

I studied History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art then I was given an opportunity to be artist-in-residence at The Kings School, Canterbury. I visited Lancashire in 2003 and fell in love with the countryside so moved up here, completing an MA in Printmaking in Preston.  In 2016, I was thrilled to win an exhibition at the Steward’s Gallery, Clitheroe Castle. I am happy to carry out portrait and landscape commissions in watercolour or oils.

Simon Blackley

I left the world of painting 30 years ago to embrace a career in textile design, my return to the canvas sees a new start and method to my work.

I mainly work with oil and acrylic mixing different paint opacities to create layers of colour which add a depth and resonance to the forms on the canvas.  I like to merge the line of abstract with reality using colour from the images to form a relationship between the layers of the landscape.

My iPhone is my sketchbook and I capture moments and time which then form the basis of my paintings.  I often work the images live at the point of capture and see the finished photography as a piece of work in its own right.

Caroline Assheton

Dionysius of Fourna, in his ‘Painter’s Manuel’, tells his pupils that even at the stage of copying the works of others they must not carry out this work haphazardly but with the ‘Fear of God’ and with the veneration due to a sacred task.’ Bearing this in mind, along with other directions from tutors and family members I draw, sketch, illustrate, study and paint. My Training included going to Florence to learn to draw properly in Signorina Simi’s Academy, followed by a Foundation year at Camberwell and a 3 year Diploma at City and Guilds. Since then I’ve studied History of Art taking Kenneth Clark and Joshua Reynolds for my lead, and have worked in lots of artistically based jobs, including being PA for International Icon Dealer Sir Richard Temple.

My main interests are Beauty, Light and Colour, and I hope to do work that might cheer people up.

Medium:- Watercolour and water-based paints, pencil, charcoal, pastel. Also printing- etching, screenprint, dry point etc.

Subject Matter:- Landscape, Scenarios, Still-Life (including floral and similar arrangements), Portraits and Murals. I like the incidents of everyday life, costumes, paintings for occasions and ones done for specific places. An underlying fascination is how Women Artists may succeed professionally.
