Born in Oxford in 1961, Duncan grew up in the Midlands where
he still spends a substantial part of the year. Despite living
so far inland, he managed to develop a passion for the sea,
and spent a highly significant eighteen months sailing across
the Atlantic and then around the coast of Britain. He now
spends part of the year back home in the Midlands, and the
rest of the time in Scotland. Taking his inspiration from
the surrounding landscape and of course the sea, Duncan is
particularly fascinated by the effects of natural light on
colour. His distinctive palette conveys the cool yet vibrant
shades of sea and sky as they appear to his artistís eye.
Verging on the abstract, his work is characterised by the
dense application of richly textured acrylics, which create
a sense of spontaneity and unstoppable energy. Since turning
professional, Duncan has enjoyed immense success, displaying
his work in both galleries and private collections.
