Aire Valley Arts David Starley

David first studied art at Sydney University whilst working in a steel foundry. After a subsequent career in archaeology, his working life now is now focused on painting.


David uses oil paint, very thickly applied with a knife to produce a three-dimension, almost sculpted, image. This adds great depth and produces a surface that responds subtly to the changing light in the display environment.


The subjects of David’s paintings are mainly landscapes featuring flora, natural and historic man-made features including the architecture of his home village, Saltaire. His latest series for 2012  include “Cats of Saltaire” and a collection of works inspired by the Yorkshire and Northumberland coast.


David exhibits at a number of galleries in the area. He also has a studio/gallery dedicated to his own work.
