David Feather (1952 – 2005)
From a personal perspective; I knew David before he sadly passed away from Cancer in November 2005. For years before he would supply me with Artworks, and 10 years later I am very proud to have David’s artwork in the Robertson Collection range. David’s artworks always came tightly wrapped in packaging that I remember would take me ages to open, but would always be happy when I got past the packaging as his paintings were stunning! The way he captured wildlife was amazing and I loved the fact that he used a feather as his signature.
We at the Robertson Collection are delighted that Jenny Matthews has licensed her stunning watercolour artworks for our 2017 Range. We’re excited about the launch our new catalogue which will available in Jan 2017 which will feature Jenny’s cards. To purchase the cards, please just go to our website www.robertsoncollection.com.
