Lucy Manfredi was born in 1974 and, from an early age, she has been fascinated by drawing and painting. In 1995, she graduated from Manchester University with a Bachelor of Art Honours Degree.


David Gunning was recently contacted by the artist Roderick Thackray, and was very impressed with his work. Roderick is 79 and he has never been represented by a dealer, hence is work is less well known. He has an amazing ability to capture the mood of Northern Industrial landscapes. For some years he worked in the coal mines, his drawings and paintings of miners working above and underground capture magically the hardships endured by coal miners in the earlier years of the twentieth century.

During his career as a painter, he sold very little, and he has a substantial number of drawings and paintings waiting to be discovered. For David Gunning, it seems almost like the repeat of him first seeing the works of William Turner.
