Artist Statement
for Bob Maddox
Bob MaddoxHello out there!
I started painting in 2005 after moving from England to Spain with Belinda. After wasting vast quantities of watercolours, acrylics and oils, I eventually discovered soft pastels. Deep Joy!
Most of my work is taken from the landscape, villages and people of the Alpujarra - a remote and stunningly beautiful region of Andalucia, Spain. We lived for 8 years in Yegen, a small mountain village set on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada.
