Julie Colclough has spent a life-time painting in the Lake District. She has exhibited in numerous Lakeland galleries.

Her 2014 ‘Umbria to Cumbria’ exhibition at Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbarn (just around the corner from The Brit) 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.

Julie’s Lake District paintings can be seen at our Chester gallery, although the majority are already sold.

Visit the gallery or contact us to reserve, order or enquire. Please note we are a small gallery and most print orders are made as bespoke orders, and therefore may take several weeks to arrive. Please ask for current lead times.
