Having worked in media for most of his life, West Kirby based artist Derek King returned to his first passion for painting in 2008. Working predominantly in oils on canvas, Derek’s work reflect the inter-relationship between light, colour, movement and the fleeting glimpses of change.

The work is based on scenes from his homeland of Scotland, Wirral and Anglesey, culminating in a modern naturalistic portfolio that shows the atmospheric qualities of nature rather than a direct pictorial representation.

Recently time have been dominated by commissions and teaching, however, work has already began on a body of work that captures his love for the sea and light that surrounds this area.
