Hilary Thorpe


Hilary is a painter who paints outdoors. She lives in Whitby, so has the coast and moors as her subjects and endeavours to capture a moment and impart that experience to the onlooker. She works primarily with acrylics, with all work being completed on location, usually in one sitting.

Take the B1460 in to Whitby at the Park and Ride roundabout. After about half a mile, pass Lidl supermarket on your right, then take 2nd right in to Ash Grove. My house/studio is at the far end (cul-de-sac) on the right, the last house. My drive which leads to my studio will be clearly marked.


Parking is on Ash Grove which is a cul-de-sac, usually space at my end. Also at Lidl on Stakesby Rd which is 5 min walk (max 1.5 hours)


I have two entrances, both have a step up but one door can be opened wide for wheelchair access with a 5" step up.


I have a small downstairs toilet in my house with two steps up to the house. Nearest RADAR toilet is on West Cliff


Studio experience

I will set up my ‘plein air’ equipment outside in my pretty courtyard and will be happy to talk about the way I work and give short demonstrations on request. (weather permitting!)
I will also be offering refreshments in aid of a local charity.
