PROFILE

Rob has a fine art painting degree and went on to work in illustration and art teaching. He is now a Wiltshire based painter and prolific sketcher. 

Following on from a large solo 2018 exhibition at Salisbury's Fisherton Mill Gallery, further investigations of Wiltshire’s landscape saw a whole new body of work exhibited in late 2020 titled #PAUSE. This exhibition depicted landscape and domestic views created during lockdown which also gave the opportunity to show his NHS Heroes portraits gifted as a thank you to just a handful of our wonderful NHS workers.

Rob has also been a dedicated member of the Guild of Aviation Artists for over 20 years and is their West Region co-ordinator, working on many aviation commissions and exhibiting annually with them at London’s Mall Galleries. 

His works are held within private and museum collections in the UK, Europe, USA, Asia and Canada.

 

MY ART

I have a particular focus on a tough yet free approach to drawing often using chunky graphite sticks to capture the elements upon Salisbury Plain. My Salisbury Sketchbook, which travels everywhere with me, is an ongoing visual record of the city. 

My en plein air painting practice revolves around immediate gouache sketches to affirm my viewpoint. My oil paintings explore exuberant textures and tones to depict the ever-changing light and weather conditions encountered outside throughout the seasons.

Aviation commissions take up my time back in the studio, combining academic research with investigative drawings created during my visits to museums and aviation events.
