Art by Robin Smith
My name is Robin Smith
I have always loved art, especially paintings, but in my youth I trained as an engineer, which became my vocation.
A few years ago I spent some time looking up my family history especially my paternal grandfather.
I couldn't really remember him as he died when I was 6 years old.
He was an ecclesiastical artist working from the nineteen twenties until the sixties, when he retired. Having looked at his work in dozens of churches and chapels throughout the UK and Europe inspired me to try to paint.
Now I love it and should have started years ago.
