Born in 1964, Robert studied fine art at Sunderland University, he is currently living and working in Northumberland.
Robert’s work is regularly exhibited in galleries throughout the UK, his paintings are held in private and corporate collections both nationally and internationally from Europe to America and as far as Australia and New Zealand.

"I describe my work as ‘Painting Nature’, as a direct response to my immediate surroundings; exploring colour, unity, composition and expression yet maintaining the very traditions of painting practice. Making sketches as well as my own visual notes, I paint intuitively and expressively with bold sweeping brushstrokes that sum up whole passages of the landscape before me. Painting on location and in the studio, I often rework paintings intuitively to produce a completed work.”

We love mixing new works with existing pieces in your collection and this can be a great and easy way to create a gallery wall. Buying contemporary work to sit alongside traditional pieces you may have inherited is a great way to modernise a space while giving the more traditional pieces a new lease of life. Our advice would be to have a common thread that runs between the pieces to tie them together - this could be similar tones or colours, or a theme that runs through all the works.
