Since graduating from Exeter College of Art and Design with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art and a PGCE from Exeter University, Rob decided to live in Devon. He has developed successful careers as both a teacher and a painter.
His work has sold through many galleries and exhibitions. He works mainly in watercolour as he finds this offers him the opportunity to respond almost immediately to the changing light and shadows that can alter the land, sea and river in an instant. He is fascinated with how light bounces off water producing beautiful reflections, shadows and colours. He is a regular contributor to A&I magazine.
When not painting he uses his creative talents to work at Aardman Animation including the popular children's series 'Shaun the Sheep'.
Rob will not be able to tutor in 2018 due to other commitments. We look forward to his return in 2019.
