David McEwen has been a professional artist and internationally respected teacher for more years than he cares to remember. His formal training began when, at the age of 13, he was accepted into a special group formed at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne by the renowned painter Victor Pasmore. Over the next few years McEwen added formal qualifications to his early training and he taught Fine Art at schools and colleges until the early nineties when he decided to become a full-time painter. In 1997 McEwen and his wife moved to a 13th century town in the South of France. Since then David’s work has been featured in a number of periodicals as well as a number of prestigious exhibitions, been a prize winner in several international competitions, and International Artist named him as a "Master Painter of the World".
