Geoffrey Cowton was born and educated in Bradford,West Yorkshire and his love of the Yorkshire Dales began during a school geography excursion to Grassington and Malham. He trained as a teacher of Art at St John's College York and later studied print making at Leeds College of Art. For a number of years he was head of Art and Design in a Halifax School and afterwards ran Glendale Studio with the help of his son, photographer Andrew, and daughter in law Alison. His paintings and prints hang in houses worldwide.He has also written and published a book titled "Over the Hills and Far Away" which includes many images of his paintings, but this proved to be so popular it has now sold out. He released his second book "With A Pencil In My Rucksack" at our annual exhibition in November 2012 which has proved to be just as popular. This book contains many drawings and paintings selected from an output of over 60 years. The book is set out into the four seasons and each double spread is complete in itself and enables you to open the book at any page and begin to read. Copies of this book including signed copies are still available and can be purchased from our web site.
