About DAVID CAMERON

David Cameron was born in 1962 and lives and works in the heart of Cheshire.
Originally from the North West of England , he spent the majority of his school years in Northwich, Cheshire.
After leaving Sir John Deanes' Grammar School he studied art at London Rd School of Art and Design, Northwich and then Fine Art at Liverpool Polytechnic. While he was in Liverpool he taught himself jewellery making and silversmithing and furniture crafts, eventually moving to North Yorkshire where he gained qualifications in cabinet making  resulting in a move to Nottinghamshire and employment with Stag Furniture Ltd. A life long interest in the outdoors, natural history and conservation sent David in search of more experience and qualifications in woodland management becoming employed with Nottinghamshire County Council as a playworker and Forest School Leader working with children in outdoor settings and training adults and teachers in ways to be creative using natural materials.The work with schools led to a few jobs designing and constructing environmental play areas, the last one being a large environmental play area for Rufford Country Park, Nottinghamshire co-designed with  Sheena Barlow.  After a few years living in Derbyshire David returned to Cheshire in 2007, to work as a full time Artist at his gallery at Blakemere Craft Centre.. The gallery sadly closed in April 2013 and he now works from his Hobbit Hole Studios in Sandiway, Cheshire
  
David has always had an insatiable thirst for knowledge, always wanting to find out how things work and why, always creating and painting and observing every detail of the world around him since he could hold a pencil. He has often used his artwork to work out things about life, the universe and everything.
He has a keen interest in art, design, architecture, history, natural history, trees and animals, geology, science, astronomy, astrology, philosophy, folklore, myths and legends, magic, mysticism and spirituality that has influenced his artwork greatly.
