Derbyshire in England is blessed with countless adorable villages and towns throughout the High Peak region. Indeed, the entire county is a wonder for tourists who cherish nature, culture, and history. On top of this, for individuals that seek to connect with the natural environment, to escape from the madding crowd and who seek to enjoy various outdoor pursuits, then this part of England is a real treasure. Also, the quaint Christian churches that dot the landscape are a reminder of the continuity of life and they provide a glimpse into the old England based on the central location of these holy places.


Sawako Utsumi, a modern Japanese artist who hails from the Sendai region, simply adores the rich landscapes of the High Peak region. In this article, the focus is on beautiful Bamford, Edale, Grindleford, and New Mills.


The art pieces by Sawako Utsumi in this article are titled the Bamford Church and Serenity of Nature, Edale Church and Beautiful Landscape, Natural Beauty of Grindleford and New Mills and the Reflection of Spring. These four delightful art pieces highlight the natural stunning beauty of the High Peak in stunning Derbyshire. At the same time, two art pieces also highlight the central theme of Christian churches and how spirituality and nature combine naturally within the natural landscape, irrespective if individuals are religious or irreligious.


Sawako Utsumi may hail from the land of the rising sun but for this artist, it is abundantly clear that the High Peak region is an amazing place to visit because of the amazing landscape. Not only this, for artists who adore highlighting stunning nature and elements of spirituality then beautiful Derbyshire provides ample places to visit. Indeed, despite Sawako Utsumi coming from a Buddhist and Shinto background, the Christian churches reach within her artistic soul. This is based on the richness of architecture – and the open welcome of these Christian churches – that enable people to find peace and to contemplate about the bigger picture. Overall, it is clear that the rich reality of the High Peak appeals greatly and fuses naturally within the artistic, creative and spiritual soul of Sawako Utsumi.
