Paintings by North Yorkshire-based chef turned artist Juan Martinez have gone on show at a Dales auction house.
Mr Martinez, a former restaurateur, of Middleham, has ten of his paintings on show on the cafe walls at Tennants Garden Rooms in Leyburn.
He says: “I am passionate about figurative and abstract contemporary art.
“My paintings don’t just exist, they are real and they represent who I am and what I feel. They are examples of my own interpretation and creation which emanate a sense of freedom and expression.”
The exhibition runs until July 31. For further details visit tennantsgardenrooms.com
