This is just part of a collection of artworks I have created from all
over the county of Lancashire, the county of my birth. I can blend Lancashire
images so that they make a personalised artwork, incorporating just those areas
which are meaningful to an individual - indeed blending with other areas across
the United Kingdom and seen in other galleries on this site. Please just
Please note that the size, colours and quality of the pictures on
