Warwickshire Railways: Railway Art
Philip D Hawkins FGRA
A childhood spent in Birmingham surrounded by the sight and
sounds of trains coupled with an enduring passion for railways influenced his
decision to specialise in the subject. This fascination and a natural artistic
talent have combined to make his work highly sought after worldwide. He has
travelled extensively in pursuit of his quarry and drawings, photographs and
notes of reference all serve to add a very personal note to his work. Philip
Hawkins' paintings are widely published in many forms including Fine Art
prints, calendars, greetings cards and collectors plates, and are regularly
featured in magazines and books, a glorious book of his work "Tracks on Canvas"
( ISBN: 0860935388 ) was published in 1998 (and reprinted in 2001). He was a
founder member of the Guild of Railway Artists and its President from 1988
until 1998 when the accolade of Honorary Fellow of the Guild was bestowed upon
him by fellow members, only the third artist to be so honoured following
Terence Cuneo and David Shepherd.
