What's your favourite thing about being a Newcastle artist?

Stuart Jones - Newcastle artist
Living in Newcastle upon Tyne I am spoilt for choice with an abundance of subject to work from, either working at the quayside and the iconic bridges or visiting the surrounding beautiful North East coastline and Northumberland for its spectacular rural scenes and countryside.

What's your favourite thing about being a Sheffield artist?

Adam Pearce - Sheffield artist
I've lived in Sheffield all my life, but for a brief stint at uni, and I've always adored the great amount of greenery and the rolling hills of this place. the verticality of it means there's always something to look at, and the proud Yorkshire culture throughout feels vibrant and ambitious yet down to earth. It's always inspiring.
James Hillier -
Sheffield artist
I love the community of Sheffield just as much as the hills and valleys, I love being able to get out of the city so easily to wonderful landscapes but still be in reach of the thriving cultural centre.
Debra D
Without a shadow of doubt, it's the very fact that Sheffield people are proud of their city!
Christopher C -

Karina Ho -

What's your favourite thing about being a Manchester artist?

Ashley Cundall - Manchester artist
The diversity of buildings, cultures and people which surround us all.
Amy Davies -
Manchester artist
I’ve lived in Manchester for over 16 years and it was the busy buzz and distinct indie identity that first drew me to the city. I still love how there is something for everyone and how it constantly is evolving and reinventing itself, whilst remaining uniquely Mancunian. The city’s a great hub but it’s also so close to some spectacular landscapes, such as the Peak District, Cheshire plains and Pennines. So when the buzz of the city becomes a bit too much, within an hour you can find yourself in beautiful, breathtaking countryside.
Jen Orpin -
Manchester artist
I have lived in Manchester for over half my life now, it’s where my artistic journey began and where life really began for me. The city is friendly, vibrant and continuously evolving and it’s this changing urban environment that has been a source and inspiration of some of my work in the past. Joining Rogue Artists’ Studios 21 years ago was the best thing for me as an emerging artist in Manchester. They offered great affordable spaces and most importantly a thriving artist community. Being surrounded by fellow artists and friends for support is invaluable at all stages of your career.

What's your favourite thing about being a Leeds artist?

Kirsty Whyatt - Leeds artist
The inspiration is overwhelming, urban night scenes are on your doorstep, gritty inner city canals lit up with sodium glow contrasting with the neon lights wrapped around Bridgewater Place. The Atkinson Grimshaws in Leeds Art Gallery are a constant influence, as well as the BT box graffiti. All this, and to be surrounded by the Yorkshire Dales and Pennine Hills. As a painter you don't have to travel far for a life times work.

Sascha -
Leeds artist
Leeds is a city of both family cosiness and fresh-thinking independent businesses. It combines the best of city life and proximity to nature. Sascha LOVES her favourite spots amongst local makers and sellers (ie doughnuts, coffee, organic farmers). Leeds certainly offers a sense of community and personal fulfilment.
Charlotte Hall -
Leeds artist
I've been lucky enough to spend my childhood in the beautiful surroundings Leeds has to offer; with beauty spots such as Otley Chevin on our doorstep. The interesting shapes, unique textures and vivid pops of colour in nature have long inspired my work.

Christ Eastham -
Leeds artist
I’m very proud to be a native of Leeds and to have started my art career in the city centre at the wonderful, Leeds College of Art then known as ‘Jacob Kramer’ College. At the end of last year 2020 I was delighted to obtain a studio back in the heart of Leeds City Centre. This year I am hoping to collaborate on some work with my artistic neighbours at the fabulous ‘Northern ballet Company’

Getting to know our artists

London Artists


We asked our artists to share how their wonderful city inspires their art.

There is always an excuse to be on Hampstead Heath, and endless source of inspiration.

Vanessa Brassey
London Artists

I live on the edge of the city, with the River Thames, Richmond Park and Bushy Park a few minutes cycle away. I love the balance.

Sophie Coe
London Artists

I've juggled a lot between France & England over the past 3 years, in the hopes of finding the perfect creative hub for my work. Although Paris was a truly beautiful and artistic masterpiece, London has become my favourite place to be as an artist, given it's buzzing sleepless atmosphere ! Residents have their unique styles, the West End shows never cease to disappoint, museums and galleries are always showcasing some exciting new exhibitions, there are thrilling events every night of the week, artist residences all around town, and everyone has a story to tell. I draw a lot of inspiration from the always-on aspect of this magical city !

Tessa Paul
London Artists

My work is very closely linked to where I live. I get my inspiration from seeing the same urban landscapes everyday. My paintings capture a 'moment of seeing', when lines, light, colours and shapes all fall into a particular order that suddenly makes sense to me. Reality is simplified, and perspectives become my own. My main focus is colour, which I aim to make vibrant and emotional through gradients and the use of light.

Marie Lenclos
London Artists

When having an artistic block and needing inspiration, I find going for a walk on the beautiful beaches of Bude really helpful. Although I might not have easy access to world-famous galleries, the little pop-up exhibitions held by local artists are very special and personal to the local communities, with Cornwall housing many talented artists.

Amelia Josephine Lovell
London Artists

The sheer volume of creatives and creative spaces in London is what I love most about it. Alongside the constant inspiration, there is a rich network of screenprinters to draw inspiration from, talk techniques, and share opportunities with.

Saoirse Egan
London Artists

Being in London it's got to be the access to so many different galleries - there's always being something new to see and interesting, creative people to talk to.

Lily Hargreaves
London Artists

Diversity. A huge source and ease of access to so much inspiration, materials, possible research.

Ania Perkowska
London Artists

I love how supportive the community is of local artists. Ever since I started painting I have been given the opportunity to showcase my work in Coffee Lab and Eye Mind Heart, two small and independent businesses. This is how people from the area got to know me and it has opened many other doors for me. I will be forever grateful to them for being so supportive of my work. And to everyone in Hertfordshire that has bought a piece from me and has shared the love.

Chio Fernandez
London Artists

It is a very exciting place to be. London's art scene is endless!

Molly Brocklehurst
London Artists

It’s cosmopolitan, people from all walks of life and ages. I love the community spirit and the business of a city.

Lisa Zaman
London Artists

Being surrounded by artists and art galleries. The Museums are an inspiration.
