Richard Heald photographs local places, seascapes around the UK, and wildlife.

| Lawler, Eddie - SINGER-SONGWRITER, PLAYWRIGHT
Added to website: 27 February 2017
I've already launched my 6th album of original songs, am working on the next, and sing 'em at occasional gigs. I've three collaborative performances on the go this year: "Tracking the Brontës" with soprano Charissa Hutchins, "Two Tykes on T'Loose" with storyteller and chair of Yorkshire Dialect Society Rod Dimbleby, and "Salt's Waters" with Steve Bottoms, details on my website. And with the help of newly-founded Shipley Little Theatre I'm planning to launch a new play "Making Light" at the Saltaire Festival in September.

| Tankard, Nick - ARTIST
Nick Tankard is an artist and book illustrator working from his studio in the World Heritage village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire.
Nick's illustrations are produced using a fine line pen, layers of cross-hatching are are built up to form structure and shape whilst other areas are left untouched in order to hint at a flickering light, a starry night or billowing clouds. It's a time consuming process, but one which he enjoys.
