Marcus Finch

Lancing, West Sussex

I live in West Sussex where I grew up with the South Downs on one side and the English Channel on the other. This has given me an appreciation of panoramic views and atmospheric seascapes. In fact I am most interested in conveying an atmosphere in a location rather than the location itself. I studied at Worthing Art College and then at Exeter to gain a B.A.(Hons) in Fine Art.
Since leaving higher education I have taken on varied commissions in diverse media including large mural work. From 2001  I have been running several Adult Education classes a week for Northbrook College as well as providing freelance demonstrations, workshops and critiques to art societies. All these are a real "Educational Experience". Many of my students are now exhibiting in their own right in art trails and exhibitions.
From November 2013 I am providing private "open Media" art classes and Life Classes at "The Heene Community Centre" Worthing and at "The Shoreham Centre", Shoreham-by-sea. (See my tuition for details).
For a number of years now I have exhibited in the Adur Art Trail gaining excellent feedback from visitors to the venues. New works have included a high proportion of ceramic "Paintings" this year and associated 3d work. My B.A. is in "Fine Art Ceramics".
I am the President of the Downland Art Society, a well established group who meet at Walberton near Arundel.

Awards

I have been awarded the continuing honour of being the President of "The Downland Art Society" who meet at Walberton in West Sussex.
