“I originally come from Cumberland but now love living in Lincolnshire. I paint open landscape scenes, rivers, old buildings, boats and much in between! The skies and views here are an absolute delight, especially to a countryside loving artist like myself.

I started painting later in life with help from many artists, including Peter Hayward from Timberland. I have attended courses with artists whose style I feel compliments my own, a desire to encapsulate the essence of a view.

I have painted in many different places, both in England and abroad, as much as possible on the spot, but if not then from my own sketches, photos and observation. I undertake commissions, either from photographs or the actual place. My paintings are hanging in collections in many parts of Australia, New Zealand, Europe and USA. (Mr. Trump hasn’t got one yet!)

I think it is very necessary to capture the atmosphere and feeling of a place. My paintings reflect this with the idea that you could ‘walk into’ the scene, they are varied and interesting with wonderfully strong and harmonious colours.

I enjoy selecting my paintings for an exhibition, there are a number of local views as well as some with a little difference! More paintings can be seen at my Studio in Digby, you are very welcome to come and visit.

I have been given several awards, including 2015 Summer Exhibition Carre Gallery Award and I was selected to be a wild card in the Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2016. Unfortunately I couldn’t take up the prestigious offer because of prior commitments! I am entering again this year!

I am Chair of the Sleaford Art Group, a member of The Shelford Group of Artists, an Ambassador for SAA paints and a Professional Associate of the Society of All Artists. I do workshops and demonstrations for local Art Groups, give talks to WI and Ladies groups and, amazingly, teach art on the Cruise Liners!”

Peter was born and raised in Lincolnshire. When he left school, in Sleaford, he worked for three years for the Forestry Commission in Bourne and was selected to join the Forester Training School. Much to Peter’s annoyance, he was then “called-up” for National Service in 1958. Surprisingly, that led to a career in the Royal Air Force, initially as an electronics technician and, later on, as an aero-systems engineer.

After having to take early retirement from the RAF in 1992, Peter settled with his wife Phyl in the small, attractive village of Scothern, about six miles north-east of Lincoln. Peter designed their bungalow and he made sure that it had a purpose built studio for painting in, which he had little time to do during his busy career.

Peter had no formal art training, but painted purely for enjoyment. His style is traditional, figurative painting, usually landscapes in oils on canvas. However, he enjoys using all types of medium and subjects. Over the years he has been a member of numerous art clubs in the UK and Germany. Since his retirement Peter has been very actively involved with the Sam Scorer Gallery, the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society, the Nadin Group and Art on the Map. His other main hobbies include travel and ornithology.

This will be the ninth one-man exhibition of paintings held by Peter in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire since 1996, and it will probably be his last one. His first exhibition in Lincoln (in 1998) was in the newly refurbished Lincoln Central Library, in the wheelchair accessible community room (previously the inaccessible reference library). That exhibition was titled “Lincolnshire, and Other Favourite Places” and was a great success – featuring on local TV.



This 2017 exhibition will include a retrospective of fourteen painting (not for sale), representing examples of Peter’s works painted between 1975 and 1998. In addition, there will be over forty paintings and prints for sale; mostly in oils on canvas, but also including examples of pastels, mixed media, pen & ink, graphite, mono-prints, wood-block prints, collage and dry-point. There will also be a chance to see a wide range of Peter’s sketch books, dating from 1975 to 2017, as well as a selection of greeting cards with images taken from some of his original paintings. There will also be a copy of his second draft of an autobiography, written during the period when he could not paint, following the unexpected loss of his left eye in 2004.

The exhibition will be held in the Sam Scorer Gallery, 5 Drury Lane, Lincoln, just off Castle Hill and below the Castle tower, from Tuesday 18 July to Sunday 30 July, from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m… The Sam Scorer Gallery is a registered charity, run entirely by volunteers since its formation in 1999, and with no arts grants or subsidies. It was built to encourage artists to show their work, because there were so few accessible galleries in Lincolnshire.


Meet the Artist: 26 July 2017

On Wednesday 26 July there will be a Sam Scorer Gallery publicity and fund-raising event called “Meet the Artist”, when William Gregory will talk to Peter about his work, and invite the public to ask any questions that they may have. To make the evening enjoyable, and more manageable, access to the event will be by ticket only. The evening is being generously sponsored by Golding Young & Mawer, and we hope that it will be enjoyed by all involved.

Earth Patterns – 3rd July – 17th July 2017

Local artist Jaq McCaughern returns to the Sam Scorer Gallery uphill in Lincoln from the 3rd July to the 17th July 2017. Jaq comes from a background in historic and decorative arts. She uses the historic techniques of layering gesso and gilding combined with acrylic paints to produce contemporary landscapes.

The landscapes are on large panels showing the hot terrains and icescapes as though viewed from above. Full of texture, colour and catching the changing light, these large works are constantly and subtly changing throughout the day.

Fascinated by the way the landscape and life on earth has evolved Jaq depicts this on a large scale with her earthscape panels. In contrast are the smaller delicate porcelain like works made out of paperclay and slip depicting vegetation and nests and eggs.

“This work shows that whether we view life on earth from a distance or close up, the way life on earth evolves and emerges is full of beauty and inspiration,” says Jaq.

Jaq McCaughern is a graduate of Lincoln Art school, De Montfort University Contemporary Craft BA (Hons) and an MA in Art from University of Sunderland. This is her 4th Major exhibition in the Earthworks series. She has commissions and artworks in several private collections.

Out of the Earth – 20th June – 2nd July 2017


An exhibition of three artists whose works have been inspired by a love of the landscape.


With a studio in a small Derbyshire hamlet, Rosalind shows her paintings expressing the shape and colour of the countryside often using folding screens for her surface. She will also show some of her beautiful wood engravings including copies of her illustrated book ‘Miss Margaret Beardsley of Ivy Cottage’.


A well- known Lincolnshire painter whose work depicts a rhythmic lyricism and colour drenched view of nature displaying his love of plants and the countryside. A much admired and collected artist.


An award winning Ceramicist whose studio is based at the Harley Gallery in Nottinghamshire. Her highly collectable work, hand built and thrown, display a sensitivity and deep technical knowledge. With her love of the colour, shape and texture of the landscape she creates tactile, unique and beautifully earthy pots.

20 JUNE – 2 JULY 2017





Opening times: 10.00am – 4.00pm



Meet the artist:

Clive Redshaw – Sunday 25 June 2.00 – 4.00

Rosalind Bliss – Sunday 2 July 2.00 – 4.00

Changing States – 24th April – 7th May 2017

Glass Artist Lynn Baker & Metal Artist Adrian Stapleton are coming together to curate and create and exhibition which will explore how, with the application of heat, base materials can be transformed into beautiful objects.

Adrian comments “Metals have a vast potential to please and surprise. Un-worked they are flat, hard, straight and cold. To take a piece of this industrial material and with heat, hammer and hand transform it is rewarding and challenging. Hot forging has an immediacy and directness, a process I find endlessly fascinating

And of working with glass, Lynn says “I am fascinated by glass. When it is heated, it turns from a solid to a liquid and in its molten state I can pull, push, bend, blow and twist it, meaning I have to think quickly. The possibilities are endless and the results always exciting.”

Pay a visit to the Sam Scorer Gallery to see the results of a 1000 degrees of heat.
