Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

Lisa Empson

I take inspiration from nature; walking in the countryside and beside the coast, particularly in Yorkshire and the North East. I try to express what Nature’s Palette makes me feel, rather than simply what I see. I’m in awe of the big, vibrantly abstract skies Mother Nature often presents us with. For me the joy of painting is “in the journey not the destination” and this is the focus I bring to my art. Every painting begins as an exercise painting purely for pleasure, following the journey the paint takes me on and being absorbed totally in the moment.
