John Ombler


I started painting seriously at about the time I moved to Uplyme in August 2004.

Much of my work is representational but more recently I have started to experiment with the way that I present images trying a slightly more abstract and quirky approach.

Currently my preferred medium is acrylic used either as paint or inks but I also introduce other elements from time to time, depending upon the subject, so producing mixed media effects.

Most of my work is on canvas but I also use board and paper particularly when I am inclined to introduce a more linear element of drawing into the creation of an image.

Subject influences, as against the work of other artists, for many of my images are the sea and the sky along the Jurassic coastline and particularly the harbour and boats of Lyme Regis.

I have exhibited at a number of venues including The Pierrepoint Gallery in Bridport, William Pelly and Tulip Galleries in Lyme Regis, TheWonderwall Gallery Cirencester, Royal Bath and West Showground and The Menier Gallery in London.

Further examples of my work can be seen by visiting Studio 19 Broad Street, Lyme Regis, or
