A painter of Landscape and Wildlife, the Salmon and Trout species a special study. My works have been highly published and exhibited.


Roderick Sutterby studied at the Bath Academy of Art and now lives in the High Pennines of Northumberland . He has taught fine-art painting and printmaking, design and illustration and has worked as a professional artist since 1970.

His landscape and wildlife works reflect his immediate environment. The wild places and weather, the subtle, changeable effects of light, colour and space. He paints salmon and trout as an occasional personal study, an ongoing painting project over many years. Mindful of the conservation and importance of the wild, it’s creatures and their valuable habitats. Combining autobiography with fantasy, the real with the imagined.

His studies of Trout and Salmon now form a unique and remarkable collection of their forms and life strategies. Many of these pictures have been used to illustrate two books, ‘WILD TROUT’ – the natural history of an endangered fish (1989) and ‘ATLANTIC SALMON’ – an illustrated natural history (2005). Some images are held in the Natural History Museum Image Resources Library, London. http://tinyurl.com/ohgwk56

Many paintings, both landscape and wildlife, are held in private and public collections throughout Europe, North America and Japan.
