For Rob, art has always been a passion.

Born in 1974, Rob was brought up in Wales where from an early age he experimented with anything that came to hand. (Sometimes to his parent's dismay when, for instance, they discovered a beautifully arranged collage of fruit peels on a warm radiator).

They encouraged him to study art. Not able to afford to take his education further than art collage, he ended up working in advertising where he was able to utilise his artistic talents.

Setting up
his own private studio, Rob began to paint for private sales, undertaking commercial commissions while spending every spare minute devoted to his growing career as a professional artist.

Preferring to work in oil paint, Rob prepares his canvases in sienna, sanguine or an ochre shade. This means he is not confronted with a stark white canvas and allows his base colours to shine through and inform his work. He then uses a combination of techniques to create the moods and light in his painting often applying the paint in thick layers.

Now living in Essex with his wife and children, when he is not painting he loves playing guitar with his jazz band.
