Bondgate Art School is an online art class from Bondgate Gallery. This is where you can find my original paintings and Giclee print editions. It is owned and run by my daughter Lynn who also does the publishing and printing of other artist’s work. She also provides a framing service for artists and the general public.

Bondgate Gallery is well established in the historic market town of the Prince Bishops of Durham. Bishop Auckland is undergoing a major restoration service. The Bishop’s Palace and Castle which was the home of The Prince Bishops and the residence of The Bishop of Durham is being fully renovated to it’s former glory. The gardens and parklands which were the hunting grounds for the Prince Bishops are also being restored. More information can be found at Auckland Castle.

Bondgate Gallery can be found in Fore Bondgate which is one of the oldest streets in Bishop Auckland, It runs from the old market place at the opposite end of the castle entrance gates.
