Artist Hugh Winterbottom

Good friend and artist Hugh Winterbottom is the inspiration behind the project ‘The Artists Tools’.  

Based at Woodend Mill in Mossley,  Hugh has been a prolific painter from an early age and has recently completed 2 major solo exhibitions, ‘Now The North’, 50 paintings commissioned by Salford Art Gallery depicting Manchester and the surrounding towns and villages and ‘Right Here Right Now’ exhibited at the Cheshire Art Gallery, a series depicting the current state of Greater Manchester’s city centre. 

Apart from working in the studio, Hugh enjoys sketching out in the urban environment and life drawing which he says requires a lot of attention and energy to catch a likeness in a short space of time.
