Congratulations to Graham Heron

Graham Heron ArtistArtist Graham Heron’s work has been selected for the Draw 13 exhibition, which is the Annual Open Exhibition of the Society of Graphic Fine Art (SGFA).  The SGFA is the only national art society dedicated exclusively to drawing. This year’s exhibition attracted submissions from artists across the UK and Europe.  Only 219 works of art, by both members and non-members, made the final selection.

Everyone at DIYframing is especially delighted for Graham’s outstanding achievement.  Not only is he an artist local to our High Wycombe store, he has trained with us on our Art & Photography Framing Weekend courses and is a regular customer at DIYframing.

Graham Heron, ArtistGraham was born in Bristol, moved to High Wycombe in 1950. After leaving school, where he excelled in art, he chose an apprenticeship in architectural interiors and design in London. He then won a scholarship to study art and design at Wycombe College and has worked all over the world. Now retired, he devotes his time to his love of painting - specialising in watercolours and pencil drawings. He likes to paint winter and mountain landscapes and loves to capture nature’s moods to dramatic and atmospheric effect. His pencil work is detailed and his subjects vary from wildlife to landscapes and portraits. Graham was an exhibitor, as part of the Visual Images Group, this summer at the Bucks Open Studio Festival.
