My name is Gerry Dudgeon, and I work as a professional artist from my studio in West Dorset, UK.
My acrylic paintings are a response to the colour and culture of exotic places such as Morocco, India and Greece, the allure of French rivers and the rhythmic curves of Dorset and Devon landscapes. I enjoy experimenting freely with paint, allowing my imagination to develop an idea in an improvised way, so the paintings are as much about picture making as they are about specific places.
