Bob Connell

After a career in the Fire Service I started to focus more on my art. I like to try out all medium and styles but seemed to have fallen in love with soft pastels. I like the way the colours blend and the misty effects that can be created with them. One of my other passions is cycling and I love to get away from the noise and traffic in Thanet to find some solace out in the wonderful countryside that surrounds us in this part of South East Kent. Cycling along our truly wonderful coastline is so inspirational too. The view across the Channel and North sea changes each day and the light, the sea and the cloud formations are an inspiration to me. I also have a bike that can carry my art equipment and easel to those quiet places where I can spend a few hours sketching or painting en plein air. We live in a beautiful country and although I have travelled abroad to many wonderful countries I still yearn for our changing seasons and beautiful views and I hope that we look after our countryside for many generations to come.

I use my art as therapy and I am at my most contented when cycling or painting and to mix the two together makes me smile.
