Award-winning professional artist Greg Lashmar: Living just moments from the sea, sandy beaches and hundreds of beach huts I get so much inspiration from my local surroundings, and many of my works feature locations which are just minutes from my front door. Working in watercolour, gouache, coloured pencil, acrylic and pen & wash my work takes in a wide variety of subjects including pet portraits, landscapes, seascapes (of course!), village and town scenes, animals and wildlife and the occasional portrait too. If it takes my eye, I take a photo, or six, and then scroll through, seeing if anything will make it onto paper. At secondary school I studied graphic design to A-level and gained a good grade, but the course didn't involve much 'fine art' - instead concentrating on creating strong visuals, but relying on art technology and fledgling computer design software. However I have always had a strong creative urge, unsurprising when both of my parents also had creative flair in art, textiles and cabinet-making.
