Fine art watercolours
Born and educated in Taunton, Ian was always artistic but never encouraged to develop this ability in school. Consequently, it was much later in life that he became a professional artist. Living in a remote part of Exmoor, his main subject was the beautiful landscape and its wildlife. Later, as a result of moving to a small cottage beside the sea in Appledore, he established himself as a prominent marine artist specialising in the working sail of the Taw/Torridge estuary.
He now lives in Ilfracombe and in addition to painting, he teaches watercolours at two regular venues in the locality, the North Devon Yacht Club, Instow and the Manor Hall, Berrynarbor.
Ian exhibits regularly at the North Devon Yacht Club (a fund-raiser for the R.N.L.I.), and at The Burton Art Gallery as a member of the Westward Ho! & Bideford Art Society. His paintings are also featured in Gallery 39 in Bear Street, Barnstaple.
