Brian Pugh has lived in the Cotswolds for most of his life. A few years before retiring he decided to take up painting. He has always been interested in art, but never had the time or courage to try painting. Having received encouragement from an excellent tutor at the Stanton Guild House he spends more and more time painting. As a former Biology teacher he has investigated and been inspired by the natural world and this has been the main subject of his work.
