About Bernie

Born 1957, Bradford Yorkshire. Developing a long suppressed interest in painting and drawing. From my enjoyment of the tension of painting I am trying to find the best way to express visual quality in the flattened digital era.

Born 1960 in London, and grew up in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex.  In my teens, I was inspired by local artists Vic Ellis, Alfred Wood and Nick Peglitsis.  I have worked mostly with oils, pencils and calligraphy, but more recently have also enjoyed watercolours, line and wash and pastels.  Favourite subjects include boats, seascapes, landscapes and beautiful old buildings.
