He learnt drawing from his mother, who studied at the Slade under the famous drawing teachers Tonks and Shwabe, and won an Art Exhibition to Lancing College. At Cambridge he read History then changed to Art History where he gained a First. His first work was at Agnew’s, the Bond St dealers, where he handled works by Turner and Constable among others, and this experience has influenced all his subsequent work. At Agnew’s, David began writing about art (lecturing on Roger Fry at Cambridge) and decided to return to pursue research there. After 5 years of research, and most of his conclusions still in his head, he married Alison and gradually began practical painting. Research however distilled and transformed itself into a book (1998) ‘The Art of God’. Art training was received 1995-6 at City and Guilds School of Art London, and in Italy under the Russian painter, Daud Akhriev. Work has been in the London Russell Gallery and various Cotswold Galleries as well as two successful exhibitions in David and Ali’s own gallery, The Lodge Studio.For more information please click here.
