Nestled in the heart of the Ribble Valley, Bowland Atelier is home to the studios and gallery of landscape artist Cassandra Batterby and portrait artist John Rotherham, specialists in bespoke fine art commissions. We have a passion for creating stunning, contemporary original paintings and offer a unique, highly personalised service to each individual client. In addition to our bespoke service we offer a range of original paintings and drawings for sale in our contemporary art gallery, a light, modern space located elegantly within the roof space of a centuries old rural barn.


You are welcome to visit Cassandra and John’s studios by appointment. The renovated farm building in which they work has been transformed into calm, creative spaces where the artists can dedicate their time to the pursuit of traditional, representational painting. Visitors are invited to chat to John and Cassandra about their work without obligation or to enquire about commissioning their own painting. Please CONTACT us to arrange an appointment. To preview a selection of commission examples please visit JOHN or CASSANDRA’S pages.

The Gallery

The gallery is a bright, contemporary space where you are welcome to browse, enjoy and purchase fine art in private by appointment, or less formally during our open hours: Saturday & Sunday 11am - 5pm.  The gallery features original pieces by Cassandra and John, available exclusively through Bowland Atelier.  All artwork is available to purchase.  Our rural art space is enjoyed by clients and visitors from across the UK, be they first time purchasers, established collectors or individuals in search of a unique gift for a special occasion. Please CONTACT us to arrange an appointment, or to request details of work currently available.
