Biography

Grahame Baker-Smith

Grahame taught himself to paint and draw whilst living in Oxford in his early twenties.He was offered a place at Berkshire College of Art and Design and joined the course in the third year as he'd already covered the first two years independently. On leaving college in 1986 with portfolio in hand he went to London to look for work. 
 
Photoshop became an indispensable part of the palette which was as important as sketching or brushes and pens. The layering and melding of drawing, traditional media, organic textures and digital techniques has been a creatively liberating experience.
 
Grahame lives in Bath, Somerset, with his wife and three children.
