Graham Carver has an uncanny instinct for finding and painting the scenes of our
imagination. His sunbathed work creates deep nostalgia, a longing for hot unworried
summers, the rural idyll. He has an extraordinary ability to capture a sense of peace
and safety, of a pastoral England as once it must have been.
After a Norfolk childhood, Graham studied art and design at Hornsey College, London
before going on to study painting at Leeds College of Art. Having settled in Yorkshire
he taught art and design for a number of years before becoming a full time professional
Graham's original works are in private collections all over the globe and he has
had exhibition success in the national watercolour competition sponsored by Singer
and Friedlander and the Sunday Times, his work has been well received in leading
galleries throughout the North of England as well as the Bankside and Mall Galleries
in London and his signed limited edition prints are widely collected.
