Artist’s Statement

David Sketching in Bournemouth

I am blessed to live on the South Wales coast, a place full of life, light and mischief. My artwork is underpinned by a strong interest in drawing – both from imagination and observation.

As a painter, I often work outside, developing small pieces that can be resolved in one or two sessions. Larger, more complex works are done in the studio over a longer time frame. Alongside the painting, lino printing and ink/watercolour illustrations allow me to express ideas in a more graphic way.

I have been awarded prizes for ‘plein air’ painting, including the ‘Street Life’ Competition’ (Neath), ‘Art in the City’ (Gloucester) and ‘Pintar Rápido’. (London). In 2022, I was also awarded the ‘Betty Hurford Award for Oil Painting’ by Cowbridge Art Society. My work is held in a number of private collections.
