Peak District Landscapes by Mo Laycock

Mo Laycock OBE  taught Art from 1974 to 1986 across two schools. She became a Deputy Headteacher in 1986 and then a Headteacher of a Secondary School in Sheffield from 1995 to 2010. After retirement and travelling for a term with her husband Tony, she returned to her first love of painting and textiles. She now has a studio in Oughtibridge, adjacent to her home. Influenced by French impressionists, particularly Cezanne, she sketches and produces I-pad drawings of walks in Derbyshire, to further work on in her studio. Mo works mostly in acrylics, layering paint and texture onto her work to produce depth and light. She has always been fascinated by trees and their effect on the landscape since growing up in Herefordshire.
