A retired teacher, Michael Ewart, devotes most of his time to painting; always interested in art he began painting in his late teens.

Although with no formal training, he believes the way he has studied the past masters – especially 20th Century English painters – has had a significant influence in the way he has developed as an artist.

Painting exclusively in oils, Michael enjoys the flexibility of this medium as it allows him to explore the feel of a subject.

To see the fruits of his labour for yourself, visit the exhibition from October 10. The Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, from 10am-4pm.
