David Hemsley

I have been an artist all my life, painting in my spare time until I retired in 1992. In 1996 I completed a Fine Arts Degree at Bradford College. Since then, I have painted continually and sold my work widely.

My style of work has changed only slightly over the years, but it still retains my love of pattern that is the vein throughout my work. I invariably include a human form in amongst the pattern that is a representation of our part in natures pattern.

I love nature in all its forms, the weather that is beyond our control. The colour, shape and space in the dry stone walls of Yorkshire. The bark pattern on the trunk and branches of the trees and the moss, lichens, patchwork and greenery that form the pattern and curves associated with the dales and valleys that are home to many life forms. The innocent joy, the ‘Joie de Vie’, found in the laughing face of every young child finding their first footsteps in what is a forever changing world.

Approaching my 78th year in December I have decided to donate any money obtained from my art work to a charity of choice of the person buying the art work. A gift for a gift.
