About the artist
Representational acrylic paintings in a contemporary style of Sussex venues.
Graham was taught to paint by his father in the traditional manner around the kitchen table copying Rembrandts and the like from art books, but it was on a school trip to the National gallery he discovered the light and freedom of the Impressionists that changed his direction forever. It took a lot of practise but finally twenty years later realised his dream setting up his own studio near Monet's Garden in Normandy spending the next decade producing paintings for tourists.
He has had a successful career as a commercial artist all his working life with dozens of one-man shows selling work worldwide but is happiest in Sussex either on the Downs or setting up his easel near the water producing his popular sunlit paintings
'Being an artist must be the best job in the world just wandering around with sketchbook and brushes waiting for that "must paint" moment. I never mind people watching over my shoulder, preferring it to the solitude of the studio.'
Graham will be on hand during the show, demonstrating, encouraging and enthusing about art in general.
