John Hebborn Fine Art

Posted by on Apr 21, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off

John was born in Oxford but moved to the North East over 25 years ago.

He grew up loving art and the outdoors, and now enjoys the rural isolation of his cottage in the Durham Dales where the stunning scenery is a constant source of inspiration. A synthesis of experience is captured in John’s work which makes his paintings strong in mood with a tone of thoughtfulness and solitude.

Artist Jenny Ulyatt

Posted by on Apr 13, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off

Jenny lives and paints in Durham City taking inspiration from the Tyne and Wear Valleys and the Northeast Coast.  Jenny is a self taught artist and has painted in oil and pastel for a number of years.  In 2013 she took up the challenge of watercolour, and instantly fell in love with its unique ability to give vibrant translucent colours that are both powerful and subtle.
