The Fylingdales Group of Artists 1986 - 1995
Membership of 22 artists.
Born 13th May 1919 Died April 13th 2013
Art has been my 'other interest' after agriculture. Apart from a period in the 1950's when photography dominated, I have always painted, sought out good artist tutors and learned from them. A Foundation Course and an 'A' level in Art along with sculpting have broadened my knowledge. I have taught painting in Further Education, demonstrated to many art societies and been honoured to judge and appraise their work at exhibitions and meetings. My work is in pastels, acrylics, gouache and oils and I have had five one-man exhibitions, two combined exhibitions and show widely at open exhibitions including the Pastel Society at the Mall Gallery in London where in 2006 I received the Frank Herring award and have pictures in municipal ownership and in private collections throughout the World. President of Driffield Art Club, and a member of Hornsea Art Society. ( Taken from The Fylingdales Group of Artists 2012 Catalogue

David Biglands was born in Thirsk and studied at Middlesbrough College of Art where he gained an N.D.D. After working in various studios in London as a commercial illustrator in the 1960's he returned to the North East where he gained recognition in the 1970's for paintings of local scenes, especially Whitby and the surrounding areas. In the following years he has developed different styles of work in a wide range of subjects, especially in marine work and paintings of lifeboats for special commissions for the R.N.L.I. For a number of years he has spent time in Spain and the Balearic Islands and many other Mediterranean countries gathering material where he has exhibited works that are now in private collections in Europe and further afield.
