Catch Up - 'Artist in the Landscape'

Kerrie's been out of the weather office and into the region - but not alone! Some really interesting people have been sharing their time and their talent.

Local artists from around the northwest have very kindly talked to Kerrie about (and taken her to) the places that have inspired their art.


For the final instalment of this series Kerrie headed to the northern tip of the region - The Lake District, Cumbria. There she met Kendal artist Kate Bentley with her watercolours at Blea Tarn.

For the fourth visit around the region Kerrie met up with brothers Tim and Andy Burgess at Tatton Park in Cheshire. They began with a tree stump, working with Oak and Cedar, but with a little help from a selection of power tools, made something quite beautiful.

Sharing his time for the third in this series is Blackpool artist LES DARLOW. Kerrie met him, along with his pastels and easel, on the banks of the River Wyre at Poulton-le-Fylde.
