Eric Pentecost - Artist

I was born in Brighton, Sussex in 1951 and received an art education at West Sussex College of Art and Design.

I continued with my art through the years on a spare time basis and settled down with my wife Sally in the West Country in the late 1970's and started selling artwork at local exhibitions around Bristol and Bath.

In 2000, I gained a number of important painting commissions which rekindled my passion as an artist. In 2006 I completed a study in Life Drawing at the Bristol Academy of Art and in 2007 I moved to Cornwall with Sally and now living just outside St. Just on the wild and windy Penwith Peninsular.

I have held a number of successful exhibits in Brittany, the Algarve and Guernsey and have sold artwork at a number of Art Shows in London, Edinburgh, York and Worcester.

"I would say that I am a landscape artist although my main interest is in the detail of the landscape. When painting outside you will find me on the edge or at the bottom of the sea cliffs, in among the hedgerows and searching the commons for prehistoric sites of our secret landscape. I revel in natures strong sunlight and wild winds, trying to capture natures plant life at it's best."
