A STALYBRIDGE woman is capturing the town on canvas with a series of impressive artworks.
Mo Heath has already done paintings of the trig point at Wild Bank, Huddersfield Narrow Canal, Cocker Hill and its train station, market hall and former town hall.
Now she is on the lookout for suggestions of where she could portray as going around the area has opened her eyes to what is on her doorstep.
Mo said: “A month or so ago I decided I wanted to try and paint the area around me.
“It’s a bit of a nod to the past as some of the places no longer exist but the buildings do (or in part).
“As I’ve been walking round the town trying to get inspiration, it’s made me realise what a lovely place we have on our doorstep and the deep history around us.
“For several weeks, I have been walking around Stalybridge looking at the buildings, the shops and the remnants of the past.
“I decided to try and paint the town and show it in a different light. Even I didn’t really appreciate all the beautiful buildings, and features the town has to offer.
“And I do think sometimes we take where we live for granted and Stalybridge certainly has plenty going for it.”
Mo, who is originally from Ireland but has lived in the area for most of her life, is currently working on another piece involving landmarks in Stalybridge after putting her first for sale on website Etsy.
She has also started one showing the Millbrook area and the cottages at Sun Green.
And she added: “I’m working on the next piece now which will hopefully showcase a bit more of what we have around us.”
