Neill Lowdon studied a L’ecole des Beaux Arts in Orléans and Falmouth School of Art. He won the David Murray Painting Prize from the Royal Academy of Arts and with the prize money painted at Santiago de Compostella. He has painted in countries such as Portugal, Greece, Morocco, Iceland, Greenland, America, Mexico, Venezuela and Madiera. Princess Zissi Bentheim exhibited and sold his pastels on two occasions in her castle in Germany. Neill has painted solidly for 37 years since graduating. Because of his epilepsy, he has had to cycle over 100,000 miles to reach his chosen outdoor painting subjects. He paints exclusively from life and has found moving to Somerset a real aid to his work and thinking.
