Don Breckon

Don Breckon was born in 1935 in Northamptonshire and is married with three children. He trained at the Bath Academy of Art and went to teach art at schools in Bedford and Reading. His painting during this period ranged from city scapes to abstracts and other experimental work. He contributed regularly to local galleries and to open exhibitions and in 1969 he reduced his teaching to part time in order to develop his own painting. His work was then becoming related to railway themes and was included in two travelling exhibitions at the Industrial Artists Group. Today his work is entirely involved with the railway scene and he has appeared on television and had two books published on his work.
