David was born on March 4th, 1944 in South Bank Middlesbrough.


Rediscovered in 2015 David had been painting for over 50 years from the back bedroom of his home, capturing the communities and industry of his hometown Middlesbrough. 
Dave’s naïve paintings  eclipse mere nostalgia, exploring themes of class , lost communities, and post industrialisation. 

David is the only artist to have dedicated their entire life’s work to a backdrop of steel manufacturing and therefore is an artist of national significace.

David has had numerous exhibitions and has paintings in many Public Collections.
