Hook Lighthouse

Hastings, Sussex

High tide at Maldon

Robin was born in Brecon South Wales and brought up by the Sea in Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex. Now retired, he lives in Cranleigh Surrey, but still has a special affection for the South Coast, and many of his paintings reflect the fishing industry of Hastings and its traditional boats.

Robin paints in oils and watercolours in an impressionistic style, seeking to capture light effects in bold and innovative ways. He also undertakes marine landscapes, portraits and, following his previous engineering background, is happy painting the steam  trains of yesteryear.

Two major projects during  the summer of 2009 resulted in completion of a picture of HMS Monmouth which now resides in the ships ward room. The second was a special tribute to Major Sean Birchall, killed in action in Afghanistan. This picture was donated to the Majorís family. Time spent in Kuwait during his working life, helped Robin with this painting and advice on military detail was provided by Major Di Bevan of the Welsh Guards.

In addition to painting in retirement, Robin has followed his Grandfather Isaac into the Blacksmith Shop and creates decorative and architectural items in iron. He is currently Blacksmith in Residence at the Weald and Downland museum in West Sussex.

Robin Exhibits regularly in London, Sussex and Surrey and in 2009 also exhibited in France at Semur-en-Auxois, Burgundy.
