Ian Newbury

Watercolor Extraordinaire

Search Westerly Rhode Island

Ian Newbury's watercolor paintings are largely the result of self-teaching. While backpacking in Europe in 1989, with a portable half-pan watercolor box, he set out to record a journal of his travels. That first foray into painting resulted in the artist participating in a group show at Noah's Art in Stonington, Connecticut.

Over the last ten years he has regularly participated in group and solo exhibitions.

In 2000, he left his position as website manager at Mystic Seaport Museum Store to pursue a dual-career as an Househusband and Artist. The dramatic career-shift immediately impacted his working style, and also afforded him the time to publish reproductions of his work. His paintings can be found in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

He maintains a studio in downtown Westerly. He lives with his wife Kim, daughter Lydia, and several pets near the Rhode Island coastline.

Call or e-mail to arrange a meeting at his studio.
