About the artist :

Matthew Grayson, Bristol born in 1965, is an established British West Country artist.

Matthew from an early age, enjoyed drawing and paintingwith a keen eye for detail and accuracy and first began drawing recognisable likenesses at the tender age of eight, painting Fine Art Watercolours at the age of eighteen, and progressing to Technical Lithographs in 1984.

Since leaving Bath Technical College in 1985 where he studied technical illustration and fine art, his reputation as a very talented artist has soared.

His first publication of Castle Combe Village sold all 250 limited edition signed prints in 4 months.

His recognised masterpiece titled Magnum Opus which depicts the west front of Wells Cathedral in full medieval colour as it might have looked circa 1435, currently hangs in Wells Guildhall.

The HMS Victory (cartoon) is Matthew's latest publication and is strictly limited to 60 lithographic signed prints worldwide.

Private and Commercial Commissions are always considered and Matthew still resides and paints in the West of England.
