David Parsons

David T. Parsons, was born at Birmingham in 1943, son of Charles T. R. Parsons and his wife Dorothy M. Hughes, who married at Birmingham in 1942. David studied at Birmingham College of Art and Design-Painting 1959-1963 and University of Newcastle upon Tyne-Fine Art 1963-1965 and met his wife Jenny [q.v.] at art school and they married in 1964, and both became teachers. After taking early retirement, they set up their home at Bziers in Languedoc, Southern France, but around 2010 returned to live The Laburnums, Hoxne Road, Eye, Suffolk. David is a landscape artist and the decision to leave their large French house with two separate art studios was a difficult decision, having owned their French home for some 30 years and living there full-time for 10 years. However at Eye they were able to turn existing outbuildings into separate studio space where they paint during the day. David looks at the world and the elements which make up a scene capturing the different layers, lines and features. His images can be viewed as bold, dynamic, graphic representations of the world almost sculptural. David has had solo exhibition at Gallerie Mercure, Beziérs, France and with his wife Jenny had their first joint exhibition at Wingfield Barns in Suffolk and he exhibits regularly at the John Russell Gallery in Ipswich and elsewhere.
