David Lyon

I am a fine artist based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I studied Art at Bolton College of Art and Design, before completing a BA (hons) in Graphic Design at Leeds Polytechnic. I went on to build a career as an illustrator and designer and began exhibiting mypaintings and drawings in 1997.

I am inspired by organic shapes and forms – references to the natural world often spark my interest. Ideas connect, breed and grow, transform. I daydream how best to take ideas forward, to make them exist as paintings or drawings.

I continue to explore my favoured media – acrylic, oil pastel, charcoal, ink and crayon – in my studio at home.

I have had many solo and many selected group exhibitions in the UK with many pieces included in private collections.
