Artists > Ian Bibby
I was a committed Lecturer in fine art at several major art schools in the UK and Ireland:I returned to London in 1981 and resolved to work for myself. Over the many years between then and now I have worked as a designer generating a living through my creativity but outside education.
The paintings and drawings I am showing reflect the landscape of Bedfordshire but also carry many memories of English and Irish landscape I have travelled through over many years.
There are references to churches, roads, pathways and through the changes in agricultural practices and growing mechanisation, which continue to significantly alter the landscape profile.
