Born in Morpeth, Brian Towers now lives in Blyth and has been painting for the best part of his 75 years. His interests in art are wide, both in media and subject.
Most of his paintings are of the wonderfully scenic North East landscapes, its moors, hills, coast and historic buildings. However, a large part of his subject range comprises portraiture, pet portraiture and animals, space art, cartoons and personal caricatures. The last perhaps keeps him more busy that the rest due to the large number of commissions to be used as 'surprise presents' by clients looking for something personal and different.
