About Hugh

Hugh was born in Manchester and went to Rochdale College of Art. He went on to study at Manchester University where he gained a degree in art education with distinction.

He has taught art including watercolour painting, acrylics, drawing and ceramics in schools throughout the UK.

In the 1890’s his great grandparents were travelling music hall actors, and this is where Hugh feels he inherited his passion for travelling and teaching art. He has taught in Istanbul; in the USA, and aboard the QE2.

His favourite subjects to paint are landscapes.
