Nick Tankard, Artist and Book Illustrator

Nick Tankard works from his studio in Bingley, West Yorkshire, and has strong ties to Saltaire and Salts Mill.

Nick’s illustrations are produced using a fine line pen, layers of cross-hatching 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.

Nick's work can be bought from Salts Mill in Saltaire, and Nick's own website. More >

Saltaire Triptych by Tom Woolley, illustrator

Tom Woolley is a freelance illustrator living in Bradford and has produced a wonderful series of pictures inspired by Saltaire. "The architecture and history of the village is very appealing and I wanted to try and capture the prominent landmarks whilst trying to evoke the feeling of a late summer's evening." More >

David Starley, painter

David works exclusively in oil paint, which is very thickly applied with a knife to produce a three-dimensional, almost sculpted, image. This adds great depth and produces a surface that responds subtly to the changing light in the display environment. His subjects are mainly landscapes, often featuring ancient and historic man-made structures and native flora.

A view of Saltaire from St Paul's Church, Shipley

Richard Coomber writes: Today I climbed - and a hairy climb it was - to the top of St Paul's tower (that's Shipley parish church not the cathedral). The views are stunning and I'm attaching a couple of photos for the Saltaire website.
