Robert Turnbull, B.A.Dip A.Hon.
Born in Berwick-on-Tweed, Robert was first taught by Eric Huntley, RSA, before graduating from Manchester College of Art & Design.
A period of painting and studying in Switzerland was followed by a return to his native North-East where, through numerous exhibitions at many galleries and an individual style in capturing atmosphere and texture, his reputation as a leading Northern artist was established.
His many commissions include work presented to the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and the Royal Shakespeare Company. He was also a winner at the Laing Art Competition in 1992, 1993 and 1994.
