Rob has a fine art painting degree and went on to work in illustration and art teaching. Recently he has had two solo shows at Salisbury's Fisherton Mill Gallery; ‘Landscape of the Plain’ and ‘#PAUSE’. He has also exhibited at Southampton City Art Gallery, Wiltshire Creative Open, Oexmann Open Art Exhibition at Wiltshire Museum, Langford Lakes Nature Reserve, Campbell & Rose Gallery, Cholderton Farm Gallery and Fisherton Mill.
His works are held within private and museum collections in the UK, Europe, Canada, USA, and Australasia.
Rob is a member of the Guild of Aviation Artists, and is their West Region co-ordinator, working on many aviation commissions and exhibiting annually with them at London’s Mall Galleries, and recently Imperial War Museum Duxford.
I have a particular focus on a tough yet free approach to drawing when capturing the elements upon Salisbury Plain. My Salisbury Sketchbook, which travels everywhere with me, is an ongoing visual record of the city.
My en plein air painting practice revolves around immediate gouache sketches to affirm my viewpoint. My oil paintings explore exuberant textures and tones to depict the ever-changing light and weather conditions encountered outside throughout the seasons.
Aviation commissions take up my time back in the studio, combining academic research with investigative drawings created during my visits to museums and aviation events.
