David Lee

I am a self taught artist, an auto didact if you like, who always knew from doodling as a child that I had got my own unique stuff to do and that it was only a matter of learning the various media involved so that I could then set about expressing this professionally.

This I did by spending hours every day learning from books borrowed from libraries, practicing assiduously with the brush etc, and studying the history of Art and Anatomy.

I did go to Art College on adult training courses after school but had to leave later on due to lack of fund, which my tutor was not pleased about because he thought if I had stayed on I might get a Distinction!

I live and work in Ilkeston, England
