After training at Goldsmiths College London, Graham returned to Cumbria and has been painting professionally in the Lake District since then. Graham has exhibited at various venues, including the Royal Academy and is a member of the prestigious Lakes Artists Society. As his work became increasing well known he was commissioned to design and illustrate a variety of subjects and his images are now widely reproduced on products from collectors ceramics to jig-saws.
Graham works in many painting and graphic mediums though most of his landscape work is in oils on canvas. Taking influence from American and British painting traditions such as the Luminists and Hudson River School, he applies similar working methods in a response to the diverse lake coutry. Recently he has produced a series of popular paintings and reproductions exploring the atmospheric effects of light in various town and cities in the North of England. These images not only combine deft handling of figures and buildings but reveal familiar loctions in unusual and striking effects of light.
Graham is constantly inspired by the dramatic and varied landscape of Cumbria, the lapping waters of lakes and crystal clear mountain streams, always seeking to capture a sudden transforming play of light over the crags and sweeping fell-sides.
" Sorry the exhibition is not going ahead this year, looking forward to everything coming together next.
