Joe Scarborough is a now an artist of international repute. Born in Pitsmoor, Sheffield in 1938, the artist has created a wealth of everyday ‘real’ images depicting the life and people of South Yorkshire using his own experiences and background.
Joe began work as a laboratory assistant at Batchelors and then became a face worker at the Thorpe Hesley Colliery. He was inspired to paint by the contrast of the darkness of the mines against the lightness of the real world above ground level.
In 1968 disenchantment with the pits he became a ‘Jack of all Trades’. He was a labourer, municipal park gardener and a washer upper for some years, whilst nurturing a dream to be a full-time painter. For years he pushed a hand cart, packed with paintings round all his local pubs selling what he could in almost folk-lore tradition - becoming at times, like the characters he went on to portray in later scenes.
His paintings were popular and sold, sometimes for as much as £10 - an encouragement that led to his life-long dream being realised. His first one-man show lasted for two years at the Attic Cafe near Sheffield's main bus station. One-man and mixed exhibitions followed which took the everyday scenes of Yorkshire life from Sheffield to Rotherham to London to San Francisco to Chicago and back of course to his first love, Sheffield.
Scarborough paintings now appear in several major collections and numerous works have been imprinted. The images, the humour, the friendships, the story-telling is still the same.
Joe’s largest work dominates the entrance to the Odeon Cinema in Sheffield - a mural depicting the history of Sheffield. The vibrant colours compete with action packed visual narratives of the subjects and scenes portrayed in all Scarborough paintings.

For further information on this & other Kerry Darlington originals please call 0114 236 4355



Kerry Darlington was born in a coastal town of North Wales, Kerry’s passion for art was inspired by a love of beautiful old picture books (Rackham, Dulac and Beardsley were favourites and later on, Pre-Raphaelite painting and Art Nouveau). This developed into a degree in illustration in 1996, originally intended to lead to a career in book illustration.
Following University she worked in S.America before returning to the U.K. to work as a designer and illustrator for an exclusive company, specializing in sculptured clay murals for private residences in the Middle East, United Arab Emirates and the U.S.A. 
Kerry Darlington now works independently from her studio at home in North Wales, using all of these influences and her flexibility to create pieces of art in a variety of subjects. 

Kerry Darlington worked for years in pen and ink perfecting her drawing skills before diversifying into watercolours and later, a variety of mediums, acrylic and oil. Following her experience with the clay murals, she became interested in painting upon heavy textures and experimented widely to produce original effects.
Her acrylic paintings are uniquely formed upon board or canvas first, using textures and gesso. The colour is then built with several transparent layers to create depth. Her abstract pieces were initially based upon satellite photographs of Earth which created the 'Volcanic' Collection in 2005/2006. This has since diversified to include contemporary landscapes and figure-work, all carrying her unique style.

Kerry Darlington's work has become increasingly sought after by collectors, in 2007 she was a finalist in the 'Best Up-and-Coming Published Artist' category in the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards, as voted by UK Galleries. Since then she has become one of the best selling artists in the U.K. with commercial work being exhibited in many galleries.
Her work continues to evolve, and she is currently working with figurative paintings, using her unique style alongside realistic figure painting and portraits. 
She also works with designers to create absolutely unique, luxurious pieces of art for an exclusive clientele.
