Dryden has been painting for a long time now but has only recently decided to move into making his pastime a business. He loves the challenge of portraiture, attempting to capture the real essence of an individual on canvas, but his real passion is landscapes and in particular seascapes, Dryden’s roots are on the Island and many hours are spent walking the coastal paths in all weathers using a very impressionistic method to work the paint. He Captures not only the image but the moods of nature.
