Based in Burslem, the Mother town of the potteries and as a figurative artist, Rob enjoys exploring ways of recreating within his artwork scenes from his own direct experience. He has an uncompromising approach to every painting that he undertakes whether it is a landscape, a cityscape an urban commission or a life class studio portrait. His strong commitment to painting en plain air with a minimum of studio finishing shows in the finished works which have freshness and vitality.
