Gerry Plumb was born and raised in London, and studied at Shrewsbury School of Art in the sixties.
He began his career as a press artist before returning to London to work as an illustrator in advertising and publishing.
He moved to Cornwall where he lives with his wife Ella, a ceramicist, in a 17th century water mill. The harbours & natural textures in Cornwall combined with unusual proportions of buildings, provide a constant source of inspiration. His own home echoes the proportions found in many of his paintings. His work is much in demand & exhibited through a few selected South West galleries
