Richmond artist Lucy Pittaway launches new collection based on North-East landmarks

Lucy Pittaway's Dawn of the Day.

Richmond artist Lucy Pittaway has launched a new ten-piece collection featuring famous North-East landmarks.

These include the Angel of the North, the Tees Transporter Bridge, Yarm Viaduct, as well as Whitby, Staithes and Lindisfarne Castle.

The Northern Life artwork features quirky depictions of local hotspots that the artist says she enjoys visiting with family and friends including Bamburgh Castle, Newcastle’s iconic Millennium Bridge and beautiful beaches close to Holy Island.

The artist said: “The North-East is a place close to my heart and holds many fond memories for me.

“As a young girl I remember visiting local landmarks with my dad – he was the best tour guide ever and would enthuse about the towering structures and architecture that the North-East has become renowned for.

“I wanted to create a collection that highlighted some of the most iconic parts of North East England and places that people love to visit, from the stunning countryside surrounding the Angel of the North to the quaint seaside town of Whitby.”
