PROFILE OF THE ARTIST LEIGH BELCHAM
I've been painting on and off for about 20 years. But it was in 2002, following a move from Coventry to Suffolk, that East Anglia's waterscapes and wide skies became the inspiration for much of my work – often during time spent sailing on the beautiful River Deben. However, as you'll see from more recent paintings, a move back inland to Warwick in 2016 has led me to consider a much wider variety of subjects – from Warwick itself to the USA, North Wales to the Fens.
Painting landscapes for others to enjoy brings me great pleasure. And when I contemplate the beauty of the natural world, I sometimes try to imagine the pleasure that God had creating it in the first place. “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31)
