David Renshaw had a passion for art from an early age and during his school years, his father helped him to learn some of the basic elements of drawing. David was only really interested in art when he left school, this led him on to studying graphic design at Southport College. He then spent twelve years working in the picture framing industry but also managed to paint part time. He mainly worked on private commissions, his early work being mainly pencil sketches and watercolors.
Although David was very successful as a picture framer, he decided in 2005 to follow his passion for art and dedicate all of his time to painting. David now paints primarily in oils and acrylics, his work is part of private collections across the UK and abroad.
