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

“I always try to make my work feel atmospheric, and I like to pay particular attention to sky and cloud formations as I consider this element of my work to be extremely important to the mood of the finished painting, whether it be a dramatic sunset or a misty moonlit night. I now enjoy painting a broad range of subjects mainly in oils & acrylics and I am lucky to be represented by a selection of beautiful art galleries across the UK.” – Renshaw
