Neil Patterson

Born in Newcastle, I graduated in Fine Art from Winchester School of Art before returning to Newcastle to do a Masters Degree.

 

After five years as a portrait artist, I qualified as a teacher and have taught in secondary education for thirty years.  Throughout this time, I continued with my own practice, occasionally exhibiting and selling work.

 

Now that my children have “flown the nest”, I have left teaching to take my career in Art to a full time level.

 

My fascination for drawing has led me to experiment with a wide range of drawing media, and has recently led to experimentation with digital drawing.
