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 is and always has been at the heart of Atkins’s drawing and paintings. Atkins 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.
Atkins has had many successful solo and group exhibitions all over the UK.
