Bert Wright P.P.R.S.M.A., F.R.S.A. B 1930 
Attended Nottingham Art College, his initial career was as an illustrator 
working on a  diverse range of  paintings depicting planned architectural
subjects for major companies. He then ran a studio developing and
managing illustrators and designers and craftsmen involved in both 
general and technical illustrations, exhibition design and construction, 
and model making. His next move was into the field of television where 
he eventually became General Manager of the Scenery Group of the 
BBC with a staff numbering 1300. In 1980 he decided, following 
discussion with his family, to go back to being a full time artist and since 
then has been a successful artist working in both oils and watercolours.
His particular interest is in marine, landscape and town subjects. He
principally works outdoors in all weathers and likes to complete a 
painting in one sitting if possible.
He is Past President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, Past 
President of the prestigious London Wapping Group, Past President of 
the Ealing Art Group and a member of the Chelsea Art Society. He was 
a Governor of the Federation of British Artists and his work has been 
exhibited at numerous National and International Galleries.
Bert has been visiting and painting in America for the past 25 years and 
has an association with a number of galleries in the States. He recently 
completed a number of paintings for the Sultan of Oman and is currently 
working on commissions for international companies.
The demand for his work continues to keep Bert fully occupied and over 
the years his painting has taken him to many parts of the world. 
In America he has painted along both coastlines from Mexico to Canada 
and from the Florida Quays to Maine.
