Robert was born in 1965 and lives in Newbury in West Berkshire. He works full time as a supervisor in a local manufacturing company, but at the weekend is out painting his favoured local landscape, the Kennet and Avon Canal, and the River Pang where it flows through Bucklebury. This provides endless inspiration with the ever-changing seasons.  Robert is mostly self taught and has been painting since the mid 80's, first starting with watercolours and then changing to oils after discovering the work of David Curtis who is still a big influence, along with other artists like Ken Howard, Peter Brown, Peter Barker (!), Warwick Fuller to name but a few. In Robert's words, "it's not only the fine work they produce, but the manner in which they do it, working directly from subject."  Robert won the Derwent Award at the Patchings/The Artist Exhibition in 2013, and has had work exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists at the Mall Galleries in 2014 and 2015.  He paints en plein air, and over recent years has become a very accomplished artist, beautifully capturing the essence of the landscape with minimum fuss. Robert exhibits at his local galleries as well as in Cornwall, and we are delighted that his work is now gracing the walls of Peter Barker Fine Art in Rutland.
