David studied at Falmouth School of Art and at Birmingham Institute of Art & Design. He is based in Suffolk and is Head of Art & Design at Colchester Institute having taught for a number of years on Fine Art Degree an Foundation Diploma programmes.
Whilst his training is informed by the use of models, the people in the paintings on display in this latest exhibition (and seen above) are composites, their faces made up from different sources both primary and found. The landscape paintings were made after time spent drawing and walking in the Stour Valley.
The bold, dramatic brush work and uncomplicated colour palettes give all David's pieces a sense of confidence and impact.
