David Greenhalgh

My family emigrated from Sheffield to South Africa when I was quite young and my early experiences and education were shaped by growing up in that society in the 1950’s and 60’s. I returned to Britain and gained a B.A. fine art degree from Cardiff College of Art, followed by a P.G.C.E. 


I then started teaching Ceramics and Art & Design in Plymouth while raising my family. I took early retirement from teaching in 2001 and now work in my studio at home in the Rame Peninsula. Whilst teaching, I used to set my G.C.S.E. students a project using the technique of ‘torn paper collage’. 


This involves building an image from torn pieces of coloured magazine paper instead of using paint and I was often impressed by the work they produced, as it was often far superior to their paintings, pastels etc. I decided to use the medium myself and much interest and success followed. I continue to work in various media, as well as collage, and produce giclee prints of all original works. I have many works, including commissions, in private collections, both in the U.K. and abroad.
