Painting by Giles Barton on exhibition at Sexton's Cottage, Devon

Giles Barton has had a varied career in the arts

Initially, he pursued a career as a musician, during which time Giles supported himself as a storyboard artist/draughtsman for the advertising industry.

Eventually he turned to illustration and worked for some years in the fields of advertising, magazine and book publishing.

After moving to Devon from London, he was inspired to begin experimenting with landscape art. He now works primarily as a landscape artist focussing on Dartmoor, with a particular interest in the river valleys, trees, ponies and tors.
