David Paynter

After a successful business career building his own design and marketing consultancy, David Paynter decided to retire early to spend more time in a purely creative role. A course at Schumacher College in Dartington inspired him to rekindle his early passion for art in all forms. He now enjoys life drawing and sculpting – mainly in stone and bronze.
Other than using a lifetime of human experience, David is inspired by the natural world and how it affects us. He works in sympathy with his chosen materials rather than imposing his will on them.
Many of his works are accompanied by poems. As he says, ‘The words seem to suggest themselves readily after so many hours and days spent in the creative process. I hope the poetry enhances the pleasure of the eventual owner, bringing them closer to the piece.’
David is Deputy Chair of Surrey Sculpture Society. His work is regularly exhibited in the south of England and is in private collections around the UK and Europe.
