Painter Cavan Corrigan, a resident of England was born in 1942 in Barnard Castle, a small market town in the northeast of England.
At age seven, his parents recognized his enthusiasm to draw. Thus they sent him to a local Art Society. While there he was under the guidance of Douglas Pittuck, a renowned painter whose paintings are in the Quenn of England's collection.
Pittuck remained his mentor until he left to study Fine Art at Durnham University. Cavana showed his excellence in life drawing and figures have remained a vital focus of his work ever since.
Having his Honors Degree in Fine Art, he chose an art lecturing post in 1964. At this time he and his wife and son visited Spain frequently and later found inspiration among the Camargue in Southern France.
After 12 years of teaching Cavan wanted only to paint - so painting became his priority. In 1993 his exhibitions were attracting attention in France and has spread to collectors over Eurorpe and in the United States.
His art work is influenced by the cities and landscapes of Europe, the spontaneity of the impressionists, and the action of the Camargue. Inspiration is every where - even in the drollness of every day life there is something unusul or humorous worth noting. His range of subject matter is without limit.
Cavan Corrigan's art work is collected worldwide and can be seen in private and public collections.
