Profile
Born in Banbury Oxfordshire, Arthur came to the Isle of Wight to camp with the Boys Brigade every year during his childhood. He also spent another wonderful month of natural history studies at Freshwater with his school
Cherished memories have brought Arthur back to paint in his medium or water and ink, in which he has been working for 35 years.
   
His first exhibition was in Eton Berkshire, following London's West End where he held a solo exhibition for the Scottish Tourist Board.
Following this he was accepted into membership of the Society of Architectural Illustration.
This was then followed by a solo exhibition at St Georges Chapel in Windsor Castle. He states he feels very honoured particularly as he staged a second exhibition there in 2011. Arthur says, "I feel so blessed that some people, when viewing my work, describe feeling a sense of peace and hope. What more can any artists ask for?"
   
After making a pilgrimage across the north of Spain from the French Pyrenees, Arthur now has his home and gallery in the mountains of Galicia on the route to Santiago de Compostella
