About me

Artist Grant Waters

I am a portrait artist based in Oxfordshire. I work in oils in a bold figurative style with fluid brush work and strong use of colour and tone. I always show attention to detail and pride myself that I can get a likeness of anyone who sits for me. I am equally happy capturing the intimate atmosphere of a cafe or the fleeting changes of a busy town scene. I paint what I encounter.

I have put on several one man shows and am a member of Oxford Art Society where I also regularly exhibit.

I have thirty years’ experience as an art teacher and have a BA Hons in Professional Studies in Education. I currently work for Abingdon and Witney College and was voted “Teacher of the Year 2020″ in Oxfordshire Adult Learning Faculty of the college. I teach courses in oils, acrylics, watercolours, portraiture, and life drawing. I also do outreach teaching in the community, working in hospitals and with people who are recovering from drug addiction.

If you would like to have private lessons or commission me to paint a portrait or any other subject, please contact: grantsartclasses@gmail.com
