Quintin Davies was born in Colchester, Essex, and has spent much of his early life around the Dedham Vale ‘Constable Country’. Having been discouraged from pursuing a career in art he studied Geology at Leicester University, a Masters in sedimentology at Reading University and gained a PhD in carbonate sedimentology from The Open University, based in Milton Keynes.
Beside his “proper job” art has remained a lifelong passion of his and so he is largely self-taught. His subject includes landscapes, still life and pet portraits and more recently people portraits. He has been providing commissioned and exhibition artwork for 15 years. Recently the Scottish landscape “Uist Squall” was purchased by HRH Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall.
He now lives in the beautiful countryside between Ballater and Aboyne in Aberdeenshire with his wife, Cheryl and daughter Rosalind.
Quintin kindly agreed to becoming the latest addition to my “Featured Artist“ page. I admire his realistic creations very much.
Everyone including art collectors will love his work.
