Home & Olden Days Views

I hope you enjoy your visit to Souterpics – you’ll find a real eclectic mix of acrylic paintings of landscapes and townscapes, some recreated scenes from the past, my popular steam trains as well as animals & birds.



Online viewing doesn't do justice to paintings, if you would like to see the originals, just get in touch
