A Northern Romance By David Renshaw

We’ve recently received work in Artery Gallery from David Renshaw. A new artist to us, the work that we’ve selected represents David’s more whimsical side. Amongst the scenes, a lone man sees the potential for love when he happens across a woman standing under the boughs of a tree in ‘Searching for Love’. Each of his paintings is also beautifully framed to David’s exacting standards.

‘Searching for Love’

It’s at this point that I would normally write a little bit about David but as he has kindly supplied us with a short biography and, frankly no-one knows David better than himself, I’ll let him tell you himself.

“Deep down I always knew what I wanted to do for a living my school years I remember my dad teaching me some basic elements of drawing using light and shade in pencils and I dreamed one day becoming an artist.

Being only interested in art I left school and studied Graphic Design at Southport College after which I found work and started at a local art gallery as a picture framer.

Needing to support my young family I worked in the art and picture framing industry for twelve years but also managed to paint part-time producing mainly private commissions for people at the same time developing new techniques and ideas

Although I enjoyed my job I still knew that this was not the life I really wanted and I eventually decided it was time to follow my dreams and with the support of my wife and two children I took the plunge, leaving my job to concentrate on painting full-time.”

Due to the success we have had with these paintings we may be running low at the moment, however we have requested more and they should be arriving in the Gallery shortly. If you would like to be notified when more of his work arrives, please call us on 01334 478 221 and let us know.
