Sophie Manns
Barcombe Hill, Northumberland


Barcombe Hill is located at the bottom of Northumberland National Park, just south of Hadrian’s Wall. The Iron Age settlement and hillfort are located on the east side of the hill. It is said that the defended camp was damaged by quarries, possibly during the construction of Hadrian’s Wall. From the settlement and trig point, there are views of the Tyne valley to the south and Hadrian’s Wall to the north. I painted this during my final year at university. Standing at the trig point, allowed me to view a storm rolling through the Tyne Valley. This allowed me to create a dark and dramatic painting. 


Sophie Manns

We are delighted to welcome Sophie Manns to the Wallington Gallery, a talented young artist who describes her work as follows;

I am a local artist, who recently graduated in fine art from Leeds Arts University. Inspired by the dramatic Northumberland landscapes, I strive to capture the power, awe and wonder of the countryside and coastline through painting. I am heavily influenced by JMW Turner and the Sublime. I use oil and acrylic paint to create realism/abstract contemporary landscape paintings.

Exhibitions: Fronteer Open exhibition, Sheffield, December 2021.
