Trevor's varied subject matter depicts nostalgic architectural and figurative scenes bordering on Romantic Impressionism. The characteristic economy of detail and the use of a limited palette awards his paintings with a sense of ambience. He is inspired by the post war English artists Edward Seago and Sir William Russel Flint, and over more recent years by the renowned artists Trevor Chamberlain, John Yardley and Ken Howard. Trevor Lingard's reputation is consolidating nationally, his paintings are exclusive, each one is unique, original and has the Distinctive Hallmark Style.

(Great painting of the Market.)

My wife has just come home from the local Art Society where Trevor was the speaker. She couldn't get in quick enough to tell me how good he was. He is a watercolourist.

Re: Accrington born artists.

Does anyone know of an artist,he attended Woodnook School in the 1950 I think he came over from Poland & his name was Emile Landshooter (probably incorrectly spelled ) I think it was changed to Cummins,he was a lovely artist I often wonder what happened to him,I think he worked at Howard & Bulloughs when he left school.

Re: Accrington born artists.

Ben was called Ben Yates. His daughters were Sheila and Christine. Sheila went to school with me at Hippings Methodist and Accrington High School. When we started at Hippings the Yateses lived in one of the cottages adjoining the "Stop & Rest", where the pub car park is now. Then they moved to Union Road. Mr. & Mrs. Yates lived in a flat at Mallard Place in later life. I still see Sheila at my High School reunions. She lives in Penrith now.

Re: Accrington born artists.

I love the work of Terry Kirman who lived in Fielding Lane, Oswaldtwistle. He died comparatively young in his late 50s. His widow Anne still lives in Ossy, goes to Rhyddings Methodist Church, son Andrew Kirman, daughter Alison Wolstenholme. Terry painted local scenes - we have one in the lounge at St. Paul's Church, Ossy - shows our Day School in Union Road. He painted a wonderful picture of the Haworth Art Gallery building. I once saw him give a painting demo at Ossy Civic Society - he painted Jackhouse Farm - a few brush strokes and it was done! A great talent! Died far too young!

Brian Ormerod is One of the finest artists I have ever encountered. Spends his time teaching and painting. Frank Sanderson

Re: Accrington born artists.

A Mr Alan Ormerod from Ossy did the illustrations in Bill Turners book "RIOT" - could he be related?

Re: Accrington born artists.

I don't think so, Atarah. I know Brian and his family - all sisters. I think Alan is the chap who has done loads of illustrations on Ossie for Ossie Mills and the Civic Society.

Is this aimed at me, Irene ? I cannot see why.

Since I posted about Roy Eccles, I have learned that he has died.
