A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.    (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

NORTH STREET PRINTS, established in 1994, is a family run Fine Art Printing and Picture Framing business based in Ripon, North Yorkshire.

Since the beginning we have dedicated ourselves to the work of my brother, the artist Stuart Hirst who has a large number of collectors at home and abroad.

Our website contains a number of galleries where we have tried to classify the broad range of Stuart’s work.  Although famed for his watercolour ‘wet street scenes’ he also works in oil on canvas to produce some inspiring and thought-provoking images.  Much of them based on childhood memories of the industrial past, of train spotting, playing on the rough ground of spoil heaps near the mills and engineering works of Bradford in the 50’s and 60’s.

Please take time to enjoy the wealth of these wonderful, honest, images and feel free to contact us to discuss your purchase of prints and original works.
