About Aileen Barnard

My paintings are of local scenery and history, of old mills, terraced buildings, railways and canals because these are all things that are special to me. I love the current and historic scenery of Calderdale. Whether it’s the wildness of the moors, the hillsides threaded with dark stone walls, the valleys narrowing to twisting mixture of road, canal, river and railway, or the buildings with their industrial legacy, there’s something interesting to see and paint at every turn.
As a student I was lucky to have had the late Peter Brook as my art teacher. Fifteen years ago I picked up my brushes again, and I became a regular exhibitor at the Wensley Gallery in Ramsbottom, and was often the best selling artist of the month. More recently the Abacus Gallery in Mytholmroyd has featured my work.
Commissions are always fun to do - I can capture the Calderdale scene you want.
