David Webb was born in East London and is a self-taught artist. From the early 1980s until 2000 he worked as an illustrator. With a lifelong interest in nature it was not surprising that this was to be the area in which he mainly worked.
In 2000 he began working on larger scale paintings. This coincided with running classes and workshops in watercolour painting. David also began writing on the subject of painting and, after having written a few articles for Leisure Painter magazine, he wrote his first solo book and produced a DVD and has since written a second book.
David continues to write for popular painting magazines and is a regular demonstrator for art clubs and societies.
