Please add anymore that you come across.

I have sold paintings and prints, as well as illustrations for Cosmopolitan, the Financial Times, and Vogue, amongst others, but for most of my career I was a fashion 'ho, and this threads about proper artists.

Don't forget ex-postman John Virtue, although I prefer a bit of colour in paintings

He's famous enough, and deserving, of his own thread.

Re: Accrington born artists.

Another professional artist - my mum

A lot of you may not know her name but you'll recognise some of her work. She was, until recently a pub sign artist. It's a very specialised field and there are only a few well known ones. Links to a few of her signs -

The Sundial > English Pub Signs | The J. Peterman Company
Astra Antique Centre - PUB SIGN WHITTINGTON CAT

She used to do a lot of work for Thwaites and Whitbread - The Stop and Rest, The Plough, The Wheatsheaf and The Heys were all hers for a long time. I think the one outside the Golden Cross still bears her name, plus the Black Dog.

Re: Accrington born artists.

There is a chap called Brian Ormerod who deserves to be in the front row. He paints and does fantastic sculpture. He was employed as an artist at Joseph Arnold's and then was taken out to America. He returned home to care for his mother and worked as a chef. Now fully retired I think. Lived in India Street most of his life, now up Spring Hill way.A very modest man but fantastically talented.
