Neil Faulkner A.R.S.M.A.
Born in North Staffordshire, Neil was seen to have a natural talent for drawing at an early age. Recognising this, his father removed him from the local high school to Burslem School of Art, a school that had fostered many fine artists, and from there to Stoke Art College where he completed his diploma.
His early career was spent first with Wedgewood and then with Royal Doulton, where he soon became a Senior Designer producing designs and paintings for their china. He was responsible for numerous commemorative projects including the Silver and Golden Jubilees of the Queen, the weddings of Charles and Lady Diana, Andrew and Sarah, for many of the royal births and the giftware commemorating the 80th, 90th and 100th birthdays of HRH Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
During his time working in industry he became a member of the Society of Staffordshire Artists.
Now an independent full-time professional painter, Neil works in both oils and watercolour and likes to paint a variety of subjects where the light has a strong role in the composition and colour, texture and mood reflect his observations.
Subjects from allotment sheds to beautiful vistas of Venice, France and Spain have been within his compass. Earlier influences have included John Singer Sargent, Stanley Spencer and Sir William Russell-Flint and in particular the work of Andrew Wyeth whose RA Exhibition in 1980 inspired Neil to push his own boundaries and to continue to develop his work.
