Bob's background

I was brought up in Salisbury, Wiltshire where I attended the local grammar school. I later went on to study Physics at Southampton University. For most of my working life, I was employed by a well-known printing establishment from which I took early retirement in 1999. I now live in Essex.

I have been painting and drawing for all of my adult life but since retiring, I have been able to concentrate on my artistic side. Whilst attending local art classes for experienced amateurs, I consider myself to be largely self-taught.

Acrylics and oils are my favoured media although I do enjoy the occasional foray into pastels and watercolour.

I have exhibited locally in Essex and my paintings can be purchased by contacting me at bob.furley@virgin.net. The price of paintings is kept deliberately low to encourage sales and therefoe aid chaities All proceeds from my paintings will be donated to a local charity.
