Gareth is a painter living and working in Newbury, Berkshire, UK. He works in oils and acrylics and is continuing to develop and refine his style. Gareth's work is inspired by the beauty and energy of a landscape, and tries to impart that feeling into his art. 

A lot of his work is plein air, but the majority is recreated in his studio with the help of reference material. He is continuing to experiment and learn with other subject matters such as architecture and portraiture, but his main inspiration and passion is the scenery of North Cornwall both land and sea. 

The landscape is more than just physical form, it is the light and the air that gives it energy, dynamism, and real life. He loves observing the sky, the drama of the clouds, the weather, and the light in the landscape, which he tries to capture in paint. 

Gareth states that his best work comes when he is working energetically and quickly without overthinking his choices of mark-making.
