Ian McManus

Ian McManus is based in Suffolk. Whilst

at school, the only subject he was

really interested in was art. He has

done a variety of jobs throughout his

life, none of which fulfilled the creative

side of his nature and thirty years or

so after leaving school, he decided to

take up art again. Ian began with

acrylics and oils but was never happy

with his efforts. He wanted to enroll on

an art course at the local college but

the only course available was for

watercolour, so he thought he'd give it

a go! From there on he was hooked on

watercolour and now paints

exclusively in that medium.

He is mainly self-taught over 30 years

with input from some of the best

known international watercolourists

such as John Yardley, Herman Peckel

and Alvaro Castagnet. He is now an

accomplished artist, a full member of

Institute of East Anglian Artists (IEA)

and sought after tutor. Ian has

recently produced a DVD and The

Gallery Holt, a prestigious art host in

Norfolk, exhibit his annual show

displaying over 50 paintings.
