David Hawthorne studied Fine Art at Berkshire College of Art and University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and graduated in 1973.
David exhibits regularly with the Royal West of England Academy and the Mall Galleries in London as well as the RBSA and is represented by the Darryl Nantais Gallery and Linton59.
He has won a number of awards including the prestigious 2017 Charles Pears Award from the Royal Society of Marine Artists.
An abstract impressionist of outdoor scenes, both urban and rural, David uses colour and tone to evoke the atmosphere associated with a place and time of day. The paintings have an abstract quality but often retain representational elements.
