Dennis Roddam creates wildlife images and views of our beautiful North York Moors by blending different mediums and techniques, with a focus on ceramics and mixed-media paintings.


Dennis Roddam’s artworks and ceramics capture the natural spirit of North Yorkshire, from vast moorlands to magnificent coastline.

Rather than depicting large panoramic views, his art focuses on the smaller natural wonders that are sometimes overlooked.

This reflects his in-depth passion for the region, where he’s lived since childhood. Having spent his early years rambling around the North York Moors, Dennis is now able to devote a lot more time to pursuing his art in this wonderful countryside.

As well as exhibiting widely, Dennis’ work has been regularly shown at the National Exhibition of Wildlife Artists, where he won the ‘Birds Birds Birds’ gallery award.

He has also had work accepted for the Artist & Leisure Painter Patchings Exhibition (winning the prestigious ‘David & Charles Award’), and also qualified as a finalist in the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition.
