David Lord is a self taught local artist living in Threlkeld, Cumbria. His studies are mainly in oil pastel, pencil and even biro ink. By day David is helping to build the new steam train line in and around Threlkeld quarry. However, his true passion is picking up a pencil, pen or brush whenever he has a spare moment and a potential subject. David has a unique gift and this talent can be clearly seen in his exquisite paintings.
