Prints inspired by the industrial landscape of the North East of England and Middlesbrough and Teesside in particular. One shows a group of miners on their allotment where they were growing food for the family as well as prize winning vegetables and flowers. The other is two workmen, or ‘gadgies’ as we called them as children, near the ‘Black Path’ in Middlesbrough having been out with their terriers on a ratting expedition. I think that seeing these little terriers as a child and then as an art student inspired my love for Jack Russells in particular but all the other terrier breeds too. The Borders, Patterdales, Lakeland, Bedlington, Staffordshire, Fox Terriers and many, many others.
