Max Hale

Born in Bushey, Herts in 1954 Max was brought up in Harrow, Middlesex

and attended Harrow School of Art where he gained a Fine Art degree.

He had some wonderful tuition from one particular tutor, Ken Howard


His qualification earned him a place as apprentice illustrator in a London

studio working on books and magazines often with incredibly short

deadlines. After three years he decided that his true aspirations weren't

being met and he found a way back into the fine art scene. Painting

solidly alone and with various art groups he gained valuable experience.

Two tutors stand out for him; Denis Syrett a former President of the ROI

and Rod Hamer a brilliant but modest artist and excellent jazz trumpeter.

His exhibiting was becoming more fruitful and moving from watercolour to oil, acrylic back to dry mediums he found he

could develop his own styles which have become looser and more expressive.

He moved to Buckinghamshire in 1978 then to Wiltshire in 2008. Success in his own work led naturally to teaching art to

adults in all forms, writing for magazines, demonstrating and working as reviewer for art materials.
