Darius Rowland Art
My interest in art started at a very young age. My father was a teacher and had a good selection of how-to-draw books in the house.
I would select these one by one and work my way through them, enjoying the process.
As a teenager I started airbrushing custom designs onto motorcycles, crash helmets and car body panels.
I began working in the art and advertising department of British American Tobacco in Guernsey, where I became art studio manager. The change in legislation regarding tobacco advertising meant a new career was needed so I took the opportunity to retrain as an airline pilot, which I still do on a part-time basis with Easyjet.
This part-time employment enables me to now enjoy painting from my home studio and exhibit in venues in Brighton, London and previously in the French Alps.
