John Haskins – Born 1938 – Bermondsey, London, England.

After gaining his City and Guilds Diploma in Illustration at art school, John Haskins had a successful early career as a Chief Technical Illustrator working for industry, before deciding to devote his full attention to his first love, that of landscape painting.

Working today from his studio at his home in the heart of the English countryside, his paintings reflect all the atmosphere and colour of his surroundings. His life long attention to detail lends an authenticity to the rural scenes he depicts. Occasionally using his two daughters as models, his work vividly evokes all the nostalgic charm of childhood.

The popularity of his work in recent years has led to John enjoying successful exhibitions and one-man shows in London and Los Angeles. His paintings are to be found in many private collections and major galleries at home and overseas.

His published work continues to thrive and is to be found in prints, limited editions and greeting cards.

John Lewis Fitzgerald – Born 1945 Leicestershire, England.

John Lewis Fitzgerald was born in a small Leicestershire village, the youngest child of the village cobbler. John’s peaceful and pastoral childhood cast a long-lasting influence on his life and work.

As a child John became particularly absorbed in portrayals of the local wildlife and landscape and thus established the future pattern of his life and art. In more recent years he has specialised in painting dogs and horses.

His work has been awarded ‘Best in Show’ at the British Watercolour Society and the British Society of Painters exhibitions five times for his canine and equine art.

John has also exhibited work in the USA.

The British Horse Society commissioned him to paint twelve pictures for their calendar to celebrate their fiftieth anniversary.

This talented artist has held many successful exhibitions over the years and his paintings have been featured in numerous impressive collections in the United States, Canada, West Germany and the United Kingdom.

He is a member of the Miniature Art Society of Florida, winning first place in watercolour during the Eleventh International Show held in 1986.

David Morgan – Born 1947- Southampton, England.

David Morgan trained at the Southampton College of Art and Design. Upon completion of his studies, he decided to travel extensively through Western Europe, to gain artistic experience. He lived in Paris for some time, where he gained the confidence and ability which makes his work quite outstanding amongst his contemporaries.

Only a few artists can emulate his gift for distance, detail and lighting in his superb landscapes off rural England. His almost photographic quality manages to take you into the painting, as though you are participating in the view, such is the realism.

So compeling is his work that his reputation has extented far beyond his Hampshire roots. Whether it’s a view of Exmoor, Yorkshire or the Hampshire Downs, one can easily recognise the locality by the accuracy and sympathetic interpretation in his work.

Two decades of successful painting have resulted in many highly-praised exhibitions in some of the country’s most prestigious
