Frank Halliday was born in Yorkshire more years ago than

Frank has had one man exhibitions in Yorkshire, Derbyshire
and Norfolk, showing works in oils, pastel and watercolour.
His paintings have sold successfully to collections in

on television, and even been featured in ‘Painting
on the Radio’ for the BBC!
