I am Robin Theobald and I was born in London in March 1948. I took up art as a preference (over chemistry) when attending Christ’s College, Grammar School, Finchley, North London. I was always near Hampstead Heath which drove me, even from an earlier age, to paint. enthralled with the paintings exhibited
At the age of fourteen I was given a set of oil paints which reinforced my passion for painting ever since, taking inspiration from the landscape paintings of John Constable.
During the 80’s I lived in Fareham, Hampshire and joined the art society within that town which gave me further insight and an opportunity to display and sell my work at the local library.
Since that time I have been painting on and off for many years and my wife and I currently live in Clifton Village (near Preston), Lancs. where we have been now for over 20 years.
In 2011 I took the opportunity to display my work through Prom Art at Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria and I have also joined the Lytham St. Annes Art Society. I always work in oils on canvas and have received a number of commissions to paint pet portraits.
