“Most of my paintings are in oils, a medium unsurpassed for luminosity and intensity of colour.

I create my still life paintings in a modern realism style – the aim being to make them as colourful and fresh as life. Although my speciality is still life, I also paint the coastal scene and the occasional portrait. My early training and career was in cartography, where precision is the key, so I see accurate drawing as the starting point in all my work.

My paintings find buyers from all over the UK and my work is also in homes in Australia, USA, Norway and Ireland. I am an elected member of the Cambridge Drawing Society.” David John Leathers
