Specialising in marine wildlife and crustaceans, Giles Ward’s work is unique and beautiful. Experimentation is at the heart of his painting.

He is inspired by the natural world and examines the hidden corners of colour and texture found in nature’s close-up detail. Giles sources his marine subjects direct from the fishmonger with Brixham Fish Market providing an incredible source of inspiration.
