Event: Bruce Dawson – Garden exhibition
My name is Bruce Dawson and I am currently living in Otley. I am very much a free spirit with my own agenda and style of art. As I travel throughout Europe many months of the year, I am constantly carrying images in my head for the next canvas. I was very lucky to love my work as display manager for House of Fraser starting in Birmingham then further North to Sheffield. Setting up my own catering business, later in life, gave me the yearning to renew my passion for art. I was inspired by my good friend and famous Sheffield Artist, George Cunningham, who painted much in the style of Lowry. Having retired to Otley, my hobby is now becoming something of a business within the town, and I am enjoying seeing my ever developing style evolve.
