Hi, thanks for visiting my page and wanting to find out a bit more about my background! I love the work of Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Picasso and so you will see a lot of their influences in what I do.

I am now a full time professional artist, a SAA professional associate who focuses on doing animal portrait commissions. I annually exhibit at Crufts Dog Show at the NEC and the New Forest Agricultural Show. I used to be an accountant but finally found the thing I loved doing!

I have a heart for teaching and coaching people in their creative endeavours, but I concentrate my efforts on using Acrylics and regularly demonstrate this to Art Societies (see Demonstrations and Workshops) and also hold my own classes in Ashley New Milton, England. I am the Artist in Residence for the Rhinefield House Hotel in the heart of the New Forest and regularly exhibit and conduct art workshops there (see Exhibitions and Demonstrations for this years dates)

I have written two books through Search Press "Ready to Paint: Horses in Acrylics" published 2013 and "Sea and Sky in Acrylics" published August 2015 and one of the images in that book was voted as the image to be used on Search Press Trade 2015 catalogue

I am a christian who happens to be an artist so I look at the world and all that's in it as a creation.  I see beauty in reality, in character and in relationship and yet I understand the need to escape to the abstract, a bit like switching between the simple to the cryptic crossword. I think there is too much focus on the violence and darkness of this world, you only have to watch the news or read the newspapers, so my work is driven by, visualises and encapsulates the focus of Philippians 4 vs 8

"Whatever is true, whatever is noble,whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things"

That will keep an artist going for a few lifetimes. I hope my work gives you pleasure.

best wishes, Dave White
