Northern Voices is a series of podcast interviews with artists from or based in the North of England. Often viewed set apart, there is something unquestionably special and inspirational in the land and landscape, not just when represented in painting but often more subconsciously in heart and mind.
Recognising that inspiration is the wellspring of creativity we explore views of the North with those who made it the bedrock of their careers.
