Piers, though a Shropshire-born lad, acquired a love of drawing and painting in early childhood scootering about in those Constable-like lanes (and off to paint the fields and hills) of Shropshire. After formal art training, he travelled alone and painted (and adventured!) extensively in Europe and for a month central Africa, before settling in his adopted, equally landlocked North Yorkshire in 1975: Wensleydale, especially from a height affords amazing panoramic vistas, a major influence upon Piers’ life and work.
He is a ardent colourist and this combination for capturing light with free brushwork’s or palette knife’s panache has produced many exceptional oils and etchings, some regularly hung at the R A Summer show. Olive tree and Seascape works have recently gained him much recognition making the landlocking broken!
