Bernie McDermott

Bernie writes "I returned to the Coquetdale last year after an absence of nearly ten years. These days I paint mainly in pastel, figurative and portrait subjects, and the occasional acrylic canvas.

Born in Wallsend, which was then part of Northumberland, I recently became a Northumbrian again with a move to Cramlington. During the latter part of my working life I owned a coffee shop business which became my gallery, and began teaching pastels on the premises after hours, after many requests. Now retired, I continue to teach, taking pleasure from seeing others develop as artists.

I welcome portrait commissions (people, not dogs please!)"
