David Bishop, Norwich Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement David George Laccohee Bishop
Born 17-02-1951 Norwich Norfolk England
I have always enjoyed drawing but never pursued this interest until about 2004 when I was asked what I would like for Christmas. As requested the family bought me some art equipment thinking it would be a nice hobby for me. Since that moment art has become a passion in my life.
I enrolled as a student with the Cheltenham college in 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed my course with them. I am a member of the SAA (society for all artist) and show my work currently on the web at www.painters-online.co.uk. I sell my work online at www.davidbishop-artonline.com
Although my first love is soft pencil sketching I mainly work with Pastel, Acrylic and Watercolour. I draw my inspiration mainly from the beautiful Norfolk Broads, Coastline and Country Side near my home in the Tas Valley.
My favourite contemporary artists are Alywn Crawshaw and Terry Harrison.
During my short time as an artist I have taken many photographs to keep as reference material for future paintings. It was while looking through some of them just recently that I realised they would make good wall art in their own right.
