Derek Ridley

My love of the Lake District began with passion for rock climbing in my teen years.

I started to paint while confined to home during illness.

Initially self-taught but since my retirement I have attended several courses including a year at Carlisle College of Art & Design.

I still enjoy time in the fells, but now take a camera rather than a sketch book.

I never cease to be amazed by the ever-changing light on the rocks and fells
