Phil Craven - Landscape Artist

I was born in Oldham in 1964 and spent the first half of my life in the Oldham and Saddleworth area. I studied Art and Design at Oldham College of Technology between 1980 and 1982, and since then have been working in the graphic design industry in and around Manchester.
I met Maria in 1986 and she became my wife in 1988 and we set up home in Mossley, Tameside. We have been there ever since. We have brought up two wonderful children (most of the time!) – it feels like they have grown into young adults very quickly and we are now in-fact grandparents.
I have always enjoyed painting, particularly watercolour landscapes and townscapes, obtaining inspiration from the Pennine moors, villages and towns where I have grown up. The area provides an endless source of subject matter.
I am constantly getting fresh inspiration from unexpected areas and hopefully you will see my interpretation of this.
