David has developed his art over the past 20 years, influenced by his life in a seaside resort and love of the coast and sea. His work has a subtle undertone of escapism, the constant search for secluded coves and apparently undiscovered beaches, depicted from an aerial perspective, describing a dream that may be within grasp. His work has been exhibited in venues across he northwest of England including the Storey Gallery Lancaster and Harris Museum Preston. He has also exhibited at the Manchester Art Fair and the Mall Galleries London. His work can now be found in collections throughout the UK and Europe. His paintings of St Ives can be found in the Art House Gallery, St Ives. In 2013 he set off with his partner, Kath and his easel, on a round the world cycle trip... living the dream of travel and escapism. His journey resulted in a stay in the Chamonix Valley, French Alps for a while, painting scenes of his surroundings and those inspired by his travels along the Mediteranean coastline. David has now returned to the UK, living in St Ives and painting a very individual perspective on the Cornish coastline. "I started on my journey with the intention to paint beaches, people, objects... describing the desire to escape from normal life. Cycling along the coastline discovering new places, experiencing the heat, sweat and sand with the desire to record an impression of the places we all dream of escaping to. The translucent waters and secluded coves of Italy have inspired me to revisit places closer to home....now I'm obsessed with aerial views of the coves and beaches of Cornwall and the realization that you don't have to travel too far to find the dream."
