Born and raised in Manchester, David was encouraged to paint from an early age by his mother and still has work that he painted from his childhood, dating back to the age of four, which shows a remarkable ability to use line and colour.
After leaving school he completed a course in Graphic Design at Stockport College of Art and is a B.A Graduate of Manchester Polytechnic.
David is now a full time working artist, illustrator and glass designer who finds working and experimenting in these contrasting areas both challenging and exciting. He says,”I find operating in these spheres enables me to reappraise my work and to mix and match from all. I find this approach keeps my work fresh and dynamic.”
David’s work draws inspiration from the urban, industrial and pastoral landscapes in and around his home, David utilizes a Faux Vitrial process, hand embellishing with silicates and resins. This process adds a depth and richness to the paintings, giving a unique and exclusive finish to his work.
