Ian attended the West Surrey College of Art and Design, in Farnham, Surrey during the late 80’s and early 90’s, studying for a fine art degree. He has a great love for some of the abstract masters of the twentieth century, particularly Picasso, although he has always maintained his own unique style.
Ian had quite a lot of success selling some of his earlier paintings, particularly in Germany. He had several exhibitions at the Lauth Gallery near Mannheim, where all paintings on display were sold. Since then he has had quite a considerable hiatus due to family commitments, but is now getting fully involved with his artwork again. He hopes to have new original paintings, as well as prints, to sell in the near future.
