About Ian

I have always flirted with the Arts. I gained and threw away a place at art college when I left school.

I became a comic strip illustrator for Dungeons and Dragons when I was 21. I was unemployed again at 23…

I went back to painting again at 45 – landscapes at first but very quickly returning to the human form.

Though unfashionable I admire and strive to paint in the manner of great alla prima painters like Sargent, Sorolla, Zorn.

Their genius is beyond me but they are a siren call…
