Julie Colclough has spent a life-time painting in the Lake District and has exhibited in numerous Lakeland galleries. Julie has been painting these unique images for several decades now, delighting map lovers far and wide.

Her 2014 ‘Umbria to Cumbria’ exhibition at Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbarn in Elterwater was highly successful.

In the 1990s Julie had the good fortune to create a studio at her brother’s house in Ambleside, where Kurt Schwitters once stored his work and where sadly a previous owner threw many of his experimental collages on the fire after his death. We look at the old fireplace and cannot believe such work went up the chimney in flames. The hillside garden with panoramic views has been a huge source of inspiration for Julie’s sketchbooks and paintings.

A wider range of Julie’s Lake District paintings can be seen at our Chester gallery.
