Frank Gordon is a lifelong artist based in Giggleswick in the Yorkshire Dales. Starting out age fifteen by studying at Bolton College of Art, he then embarked on a thirty-year career as an art teacher. He is a committed landscape painter, working with the full range of media, though oil is his favourite.

Frank uses directly-observed drawings and supplementary photographs from his many hikes & rambles as the starting point for his paintings. His memories and imagination works on these back in his studio, creating finished paintings that are a fine balance of those intense first-hand experiences and more painterly aspects of colour and form.

I try to recapture the feeling of being amongst the hills: experiencing their flickering light, flying cloud shadows, buffeting wind, rainwater on the face . . . while never forgetting that behind these fleeting sensory assaults lies the enduring rock, solid and unyielding under my feet. This collision between the ephemeral and the eternal is a good subject for a painter.” Frank Gordon
