The majority of Robert‘s work is painted in oils. Although mainly figurative, it has no fixed rules or direction other than a desire to engage with the subject matter. He tries to avoid questions about being a painter as it usually leads to being asked to decorate someone’s bathroom. He has been featured in a number of publications including “The Artist”, “International Artist”, and the RA catalogue.
Awards include; The Davidson Award for Oil Painting, The Rowney Painting Prize, and Howard De Walden Prize. Exhibitions include; The New Grafton, Llewellyn Alexander, RA, and RBA shows. Unusual career moments include an extended stay in Bangkok as a guest of the Thai Royal family and being commissioned to re design St Petersburg for 150 quid. When away from the easel Robert plays guitar and is in low single figures as a golfer. If not an artist, he would most likely be bad at digging holes in the road, or possibly be even worse at decorating bathrooms. He loves the North Yorkshire moors and vitality of London. His favourite film is The Hostel as he dislikes pretending to enjoy holidays, and demand total silence when working, neighbours with barking dogs should take note.View Full Bio
