Rod Ashman

I live in Cheltenham and was head of art at Pate's Grammar school until recent retirement . My own training as an artist took place at Wolverhampton, Cheltenham and Birmingham colleges, where I studied painting and ceramics. At the present time I am mainly painting. Both landscape and seascape are currently my sources of inspiration stemming from recent visits to cornwall and of course the Gloucestershire countryside. I try to express a feeling of what I see, an interpretation rather than a copy. Though it may sometimes appear too abstract, it is at any level a collection of marks or reactions. The paintings can I hope be enjoyed on at least two levels. One as representation seen from a distance, and then as abstract indulgent use of paint close up.
