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 The price of paintings is kept deliberately low to encourage sales and therefore aid chaities All proceeds from my paintings will be donated to a local charity.
