David McCallam, a native of the Calder Valley, has studied and worked in this deeply historic environment for many years.
David graduated from Bradford College of Art but it is only very recently that he has been able to concentrate on expressing his local landscape through art. Having made this decision David says "it's uncanny how situations and opportunities have presented themselves - they have found me rather than the other way round.
I have worked with pastels, acrylic and watercolour in bold expressive ways and practised in much of England from the far north to Lands End and also in Spain, Germany and Italy. My latest work, on one metre square canvases under the guidance of artist Tom Wood, is my most exciting to date and is the direction I intend to pursue".
