SIMON DOLBY

Dolby trained at The Ruskin School of Art in Cambridge in the 70’s and worked as an illustrator and designer for many years before embarking on a career as a fine artist 20 years ago. After buying the old Oundle doctors’ surgery, he and his wife Gillian converted it into a house and studio, later changing the patients’ waiting rooms into an art gallery.

He paints in watercolour and oils, particulary architectural and landscape subjects. He has taken on many commissions for architectural paintings including Burghley and Drayton House. In 2018 a commission by Lucy Chenevix-Trench to paint a 4′ x 3′ oil painting of Madresfield Court in Worcestershire was completed. Madresfield Court is a wonderful 900 year old moated house and is also famous as the setting and inspiration for Evelyn Waugh’s novel Brideshead Revisited.

In 2013 he was commissioned to paint a large canvas of the Grand Canal, Venice and in 2018 was commissioned by the same client to paint a 6′ x 4′ Capriccio painting of Oundle featuring the customers house set in 18 century Oundle along with a number of Oundle School buildings.
