About the artist
It's me! Greg Lashmar, a professional artist and creator of all of the artwork displayed on this website. I live on the beautful North Essex coast at Walton on the Naze, with my wife Margaret, who is an author, and our mad cocker spaniel Jasper.
Living just moments from the sea, sandy beaches and hundreds of beach huts one way and the SSSI that is the Hamford Backwaters, location of the Arthur Ransome novel Swallows and Amazons, I get so much inspiration from my local surroundings, and many of my works feature locations which are just minutes from my front door.
Working in watercolour, pencil and pen & watercolour (pen & wash) my work takes in a wide variety of subjects, from pet portraits, landscapes, seascapes (of course!), village and town scenes, and the occasional portrait too. If it takes my eye, I take a photo, or six, and then scroll through, seeing if anything will make it onto paper.
