David starts with pencil sketches. The next process requires cutting up of material, usually old denim which is distressed with knives and a wire bush to tease out the threads and are then applied with texture paste onto board. Layers of paint are then applied with the final details worked using palette knives, brushes and his fingers.
Alongside attending college in engineering, David went to Coventry college of Art and Design in the evenings to study Technical Illustration/Graphics. Illustration skills taught him perspective; an invaluable grounding for the future.
David then went on to successfully illustrate automotive workshop and parts manuals. After taking many holidays in Cornwall, the urge to move was inevitable and after a long summer in St Ives sketching around the harbour, he finally settled in Plymouth before moving to Cornwall.
After tutoring Truro Art School, David started running his own art classes, but the need to produce more of his own work to meet the demands of galleries and clients increased, he was forced to concentrate on his own career.
