About Cumbrian Artist – David Pooley

A self-taught artist based in Cumbria, I now work full time producing work in a variety of media including pencil, charcoal, pen & ink, pastel and acrylics. I’ve always enjoyed drawing from a young age and feel privileged to be able to do something that I love.

I’ve always had a creative streak and started my working life at 16 in a local printing firm training to become a graphic designer. Although I’ve had a successful career as a designer, art is my real passion and this is now my main focus.

I am a regular exhibitor at Prom Art, the largest open air arts and crafts event in the North West. It is held on the last Sunday of every month between April and September along the Prom at Grange over Sands. I also attend other shows and events throughout the year and have work on display in several galleries and shops throughout Cumbria and beyond. You can find out where my work is exhibited or which event I will be attending by checking my Galleries and Events page.
