Simon Dobbs’ current paintings, in acrylic on canvas, are images mainly derived from birds on Slapton Ley – hence the title: Swansong. These are large and colourful with the scale of the gallery space in mind.
Simon studied at St Martin’s School of Art before training as an architect and town planner. He took up painting full-time in the 1990s, exhibiting paintings of the urban landscape in London, and then for five years ran the Seagull Gallery in Salcombe, exhibiting mainly his own work. He has exhibited in London and Japan as well as locally in Devon.
