David Barnes


David Barnes was born in Africa and spent his early childhood there. He has a degree in history and economics and qualified as a chartered accountant.

He began painting in 2008 when he retired. His first exhibition, held during Herefordshire’s Open Studio week in September of that year, was a virtual sell-out. In the same year, one of his paintings was selected for the Christmas Exhibition at the Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy. Since then he has exhibited regularly at the Albany Gallery in Cardiff as well as the Red Rag Gallery, Bath. His work has also been in galleries in Chester, Brecon, Stow-on-the-Wold, Nantwich, Milford Haven and at Plas Glyn y Weddw at Llanbedrog near Pwllheli. One of his paintings hangs in the Welsh National Assembly buildings in Cardiff.

He has had several one man exhibitions, including the Albany Gallery, Cardiff and the Red Rag Gallery, Bath. His work has been sold to clients in China, France, Netherlands, Russia, Australia and the United States. He has lived in north Wales most of his adult life and spent much of his free time walking in the mountains of Snowdonia and on the coastline of north Wales and Anglesey. It is his response to these landscapes that inspires much of his work. As well as painting the north Wales landscape, he also enjoys painting still life subjects. David paints in oils, using a palette knife and a thick impasto technique to produce bold strokes that add strength and texture to his work, giving it a sculptured feel.
