The paintings of David Gillingwater

David Gillingwater trained as an illustrator and graphic designer, now living near Aldeburgh on the Suffolk Coast. He is under the tutelage of portrait artist Jack Stephenson, himself a pupil of Ken Howard. He is learning to produce portraits in oils, both formal and informal. Taking great inspiration from the classical masters of the Edwardian era, David aspires to give narrative to the individuals depicted.
