Biography
David AtkinsDavid Atkins studied painting at some of Britain’s finest art schools including St. Martin’s School of Art and Winchester School of Art, gaining a 1st Class Honours Degree in painting in 1986.

The tradition of landscape painting has always been at the heart of David’s drawing and painting. He 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 exhibits regularly at The Albemarle Gallery in London and has had many successful solo and group exhibitions all over the UK. His work is included in both private and public collections and last year he was involved in a project with the London Olympics (ODA).

He lives in Dorset with his wife and three children.
