Illustrator on show at National Park offices

Grassington, 3 July, 2012.

Artist and illustrator Roy Hubbard will be showing a range of his work in the Bainbridge offices of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) for the next two months.

Entitled ‘Mixed Media - Drawings, Paintings and Graphic Work’, his exhibition in the reception area of the Yoredale offices includes stencil/letterpress, watercolour, collage and graphite, to depict birds, flowers, and landscape features from the Dales.  

Roy, who lives in Nelson, is the latest in a long line of artists who have been invited to showcase their work in the YDNPA’s offices.

'' My drawings, paintings and graphic work are inspired by natural forms with the intention of celebrating nature in its diversity and habitat, and I am particularly attracted to upland terrain, especially my native Pennines,” he said.
 
“I enjoy working with mixed media – especially watercolour; acrylic and graphite. They are versatile mediums that allow me to work both in or out of doors with minimum fuss or deliberation - yet may be depended upon when greater focus is needed.
 
“For over two decades I have enjoyed working as an artist/ illustrator, especially in the field of natural history, collaborating with others on varied projects. Major clients have included the Natural History Museum, BBC Books, English Nature, the North York Moors National Park; and with an award winning garden designer at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
 
He has also been working for several years with printmaker/ poet Andrew Morrison.

Richard Burnett, the YDNPA’s Director of Corporate Services, said: “This is a slightly different exhibition in that it displays the skills of an illustrator as well as those of than of an artist. We hope people who visit the offices on business or who come specifically to look at the work will enjoy it.”

His exhibition runs to the end of August in the offices, which are open from 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
