Born in Liverpool's Dockland in 1938, Doug was recommended to Art School at 15, but
poor family income prevented this. After
serving as a Physical Training Instructor in the Army, Doug returned to his
trade as a mechanical fitter/HGV driver. In
total contrast, his latent passion for painting soon arose.
Rewardingly, TV invited Doug, and after three appearances commissions
flooded in, many from VIP's and show people.
memories of cobbled streets, gas lamps, trams, horses, and poor people hallmark
his oil paintings. Doug spends many
hours in research, and his paintings are in great demand.
His paintings are sold all over the world: America, South Africa,
and Australia, to name a few.
Now living in rural Cheshire, Doug adds village street life as another dimension to his work.
Close links with local historians make him a very popular northern artist indeed.
