Artist : Lee McCarthy

I left school with very few qualifications and followed in my fathers footsteps and became a landscape garden designer. I ran my own landscaping business until 2008 when I decided to start painting full time. Though mostly self taught I do have an A level in art and design and have been creating art all my life.

I work from my studio at home. Working on canvas using acrylics or oils, I paint harbour scenes mostly as I have been inspired by visits to these places from a child. I do paint other subjects including still life, cityscapes and abstracts. I like to experiment with different media, styles and technique to create a certain subject. Sketches and photographs are used as a visual reference for my paintings.
