Hello and welcome to my website

I am an artist from the North East of England. My main focus is on Ecological and Coal Mining, which are very important in our region, both currently and historically.

On these pages you will find examples of my work along with information about myself. I have also included my thoughts regarding what inspired whilst creating the works displayed on this site.

Please feel free to contact me, using the 'Contact' button above, and let me know what you think of my work

Thank You
Derek Slater

Author Stuart Trotter has wrote a book titled "The Coal Mine" that portrays the work of a miner in a coal mine. The book contains my paintings as illustrations to show the different aspects of the miners working life.
