                                                                     Liz and Dave


We are professional husband and wife artists, painting mainly with watercolour. We are also very experienced tutors. Our lives as artists are interesting and varied, for instance we have tutored as guest lecturers for two major cruise lines, which enabled us to travel around the world sketching and painting. For many years we have had articles published by a major art periodical, "The Leisure Painter" www.painters-online.co.uk ( we have also written for  the SAA magazine "Paint" www.saa.co.uk) We have written a series of 12 articles to teach step-by-step watercolour for The Leisure Painter. We were also Guest Artists at NEC Birmingham`s `Art Materials Live`, for Leisure Painter and The Artist magazines. 

In late 2014 we moved to Devon, selling both our French property and our flat in North Wales. We are very excited to have a new area of the country to explore, sketch and paint. We have both been out sketching on wild and stunning Dartmoor and around the beautiful coastline. We have been sketching and painting: at last we have time!

We now have nine grandchildren and have been renovating our old Georgian house in Devon so we have not had much time to concentrate on painting for exhibitions. Hopefully this will change in the coming years.

See below for examples of our Paintings/ sketches. Visit our galleries to see David Pilgram and Elizabeth Marsden-King's work, plus our "New Work" gallery. Click once to enlarge images.
