About Eleanore Ditchburn
Eleanore Ditchburn MA

Hi, I am an artist based in the UK who specialises in painting in oil, acrylic and watercolour paints.  I have been working as a professional artist since 2011 and previously trained in fashion design.

My favourite days involve making new art and designs with the special help of my studio assistant Scamp the Border terrier.

I completed a BA hons and an MA in Fine Art at Sunderland University whilst raising a beautiful family.  Art work can be found in The Gatehouse collection and she has exhibited most recently at Newcastle’s Central Station.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.’

Henry David Thoreau 

If you would like to work with me or have any enquiries about my work please contact me here.
