Michael Ewart's instantly recognisable work portrays people in everyday situations such as cafes, train stations and on the beach. Painting exclusively in oils, he also is known for his evocative landscapes.
"I have been painting and drawing since a boy and to this day still take great pleasure from putting paint to canvas. Painting brings me joy and I hope that you can share in this when viewing my paintings throughout this site.I was born in 1940 in the village of Felton, in Northumberland and lived there until I married in 1966. After which my wife and I moved to Ashington and started a family. Having grown up in the Northumbria countryside, in the early years this is where I drew inspiration for my paintings and produced mainly landscapes of this beautiful county.Now that I am retired my work has greater variation and inspiration comes from many different areas, particularly my travels through Europe."
