David Atkins attended some of Britain’s finest art schools including St. Martins School of art and Winchester School of Art.
The tradition of landscape painting has always been at the heart of David’s drawing and paintings. David works directly from the environment, often revisiting places many times and in ever changing weather and seasons.
His paintings have been inspired by his immediate surroundings as well as his travels. Visits to New York, Europe and Ireland have resulted in a series of larger paintings that also aim to capture something of the essence of place.
David has had many successful solo and group exhibitions all over the UK.
He lives in Dorset with his wife and three children.
