Barry Pickersgill

I served an apprenticeship as an artist in a large commercial studio in Leeds from the age of fifteen. I also studied at Leeds College of Art and Cambridge College of Art before a career as a graphic artist, Illustrator and cartoonist.My work has been seen on a large number of TV programmes and shows and I was the regular cartoonist for news and current affairs on Yorkshire Television for many years. I have exhibited widely in the Yorkshire area and my work is in the collections of, among others, a former Prime Minister, a major merchant bank, a champion boxer and several England cricketers. I work mostly in acrylic as the quick-drying properties of this medium suit my style of working – a legacy from my work as an illustrator and graphic artist and the hectic schedules of the commercial art world.
