Carrick Siddell was born in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands and travelled extensively as a child – spending many years growing up between America and Spain. He studied Fine Art at the University of Wolverhampton graduating with a BA Honours Degree in 2002, followed by a PGCE in Art and Design from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005.
Carrick likes to record the subtle changes in light and shadow that would normally go unnoticed. His paintings record these changes and sights almost like memories or snapshots of the places he has visited. He doesn't always want to paint the sunlit streets of a Mediterranean village - rather, the way a shadow falls on the side of a wall or an alley way.
