PIERS BROWNE

Piers, a  Shropshire-born lad, acquired a love of drawing and painting in early childhood scooter-ing about in those Constable-like lanes  of south-west Salop.

After formal art training, he travelled alone and painted extensively in Europe and for a month in central Africa, before settling in his adopted, equally landlocked  North Yorkshire in 1975:  Wensleydale, especially from a height affords amazing panoramic, unspoilt vistas,  a major influence upon Piers’ life and work.

Essaouira on the more southern coast of Morocco has recently inspired Dawn acrylics and Oils (only 2 of the many as yet on this www under Seascapes/Foreign) and he longs for a show of work done there. It was The Alpes-Maritime country ’til then – and before that Kenya, Swaziland then Java but always Provence.

This show includes several recent oils from the many views from near his home above Askrigg in Wensleydale, plus paintings done in Morocco and Lago Como. There are also a few that were done for the illustrated novelette ‘La Route des Violettes’, for which a new edition is to be announced shortly.
