Born in 1946 Gordon studied at Farnham School of Art. Having spent a number of very successful years as a graphic designer working for such clients as ICI, Glaxo and the Hunting Group, he turned with equal success to painting. His watercolours are subtle statements of light and shade that are highly emotive. He searches for the loneliness of nature in all its moods. He has had many important commissions: The Royal Marines, the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, the National Library, the British Embassy Warsaw, and the private collection of Nelson Mandela. His work is becoming highly collected both here and abroad.

Born in 1951 Neil lives and works in Yorkshire. His highly detailed paintings in oil cover both landscape and wildlife. Indeed his wildlife paintings have been commissioned by the WWF no less than 10 times in the past. But it is his landscape studies that have brought him fame. Having been featured on TV in 1982 his work is much sought after both here and abroad. He combines a sure skill of composition and fine detail to draw the viewer in; but you are then able to step back again to amire the whole. His work has been widely published.
