Established in 1994, Skylark Studio is the gallery and workplace of artist Rolf Parker, who specialises in high quality representational paintings and etchings of Western Lake District landscapes and street scenes. Situated in the attractive town of Cockermouth, which is a good base for exploring the quieter northern and western areas of Cumbria, the gallery also stocks a great selection of British - made crafts, fashion jewellery made on the premises and greetings cards. The etchings can also be bought from this site online. If you have visited the gallery in the past and would like to mail order other items you have seen, including original pastels illustrated on the 'currently available paintings' page please contact me.
