Michael Ahearne

Devon, UK

Michael Damien Ahearne lives in Budleigh Salterton, a small town on the Devon coast in the UK. He spent 5 years at Art College studying Illustration and is also a qualified Graphic Designer.

My art is predominantly created using both traditional and modern techniques in Oils, I also use Acrylics, Watercolours and Gouache.

I grew up surfing the wonderful beaches of the Gower Peninsular in Wales, travelling further afield to Devon, Cornwall, France & Spain. I surfed for over 20 years and my work reflects this experience. My current paintings are mostly inspired by the Devon coastline where I live. This area of Britain, the 'Jurassic Coastline' is in my opinion the 'jewel in the crown' for artistic inspiration.

I am a member of the Chartered Society of Designers which is the professional body in the UK for designers.
