David Shiers has worked in various studios as a Graphic Designer for many years and exhibited widely around the country. He decided to become an independent artist in 2003 and has painted professionally ever since.
David attended Liverpool College of Art life drawing classes, but is mostly a self-taught artist. He works in oils and mixed media; combining watercolour, acrylic, oil pastel and gouache and his working process is based on a series of Plein Air watercolour sketches.
David spends a lot of time painting on location and is much inspired by works of the past impressionists, Pissaro, Monet, Cezanne and Sisley to mention but a few.
Working as full time artist now gives David time to diversify and experiment with light and nature. His studio is based in Stone, Staffordshire.
David Shiers’ ‘City of Change’ is one of the Unicorn Gallery’s best selling limited editions having caught the imagination of many a discerning customer.
