Ben Holgate has worked as a professional artist for over forty years and before that was head of Art at St Martins College in the university of Lancaster. His work has been successfully exhibited in galleries throughout this country and abroad. Original examples are today in the collections of many famous people in public life including members of the Royal Household. He was commissioned to design and carry out the Nativity setting in St. Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle. Ben has given me permission to display these prints of his paintings on this website.
My sister Barbara produced outstanding sculptures at their Heatherdene Studio in Lancaster; their life-like quality, detail and facial expression earned Barbara commissions from around the globe. Many sending photographs of their children playing instruments for Barbara to work from. I managed to photograph some of her work before shipping.
