Gallery of work

I paint primarily in oils and am constantly inspired by nature, colour, space and form.
I have had some exhibitions in London at Kensington and Chelsea. I exhibit regularly at the Cambridge Drawing Society and at the Hertford Art Society. I am due to have an mixed artist show in London in early November.

I studied graphic design at Hornsey school of art and then worked for a year as an illustrator after leaving college. Art Director at Polydor records for three years then for many years as a self employed record cover designer working on covers for the Who, Siouxie and the Banshees, XTC and many more.

In my 30's I attended the Slade summer school and since then I have painted regularly. 
My love of painting is inspired and encouraged by two generations of artists, my father Geoffrey Robert Mumford and grandfather Robert Thomas Mumford.

I paint mostly still life trying to find good colour relationships and looking for the abstract shapes in my compositions. I am constantly inspired by colour, space and form. I paint and draw regularly from life models and practise plein air landscape painting.
I am inspired by Corot, Cezanne, Chardin and recently by artists who have studied at the Jerusalem Studio School.
I exhibit regularly with The Cambridge Drawing Society and the Hertford Art Society. I live and work in Hertfordshire.
