brian elwell

The early part of my career was largely taken up with teaching in a Faculty of Art and Design in Southampton, which did a lot to hone my skills by giving advice and help to students keen on being artists. It was essential to keep up my own practice, though quite difficult at times to combine it with the demands of my fine art lecturing and admin. I enjoyed working with students, though it was quite a relief to be able to move on.

I do offer a mentoring service for students of painting, and the first session is free, so if you are interested please contact me. No obligation to come again.

‚ÄčI have been able to devote myself exclusively to my painting for the past twenty five years. My work has gone through a number of phases in that time, as I have gradually become more preoccupied with ideas about history and change, conditions of light, and pictorial space, in an attempt to convey my feelings about the subject.
