David Hoyle - Watercolours
June 1925 - March 2009
Born in Hessle in the East Riding David Hoyle
studied at Keighley, and Leeds College of Art.
After War Service in the Navy, he went into joinery
and cabinet making, developing original ideas for fitted
furniture, using traditional tools and materials.
In addition, his graphic capturing of youthful memories,
domestic and industrial activities, are proving both
educational and amusing in their detail.
Above all he believed that good drawing is the primary
requisite to good painting and was a regular contributor to
exhibitions and publications in the North of England.
His one man exhibitions were always popular, particularly
in his beloved Dales.
with great sadness that David passed away in March 2009, he will be greatly
missed by all his Moonraker colleagues, his memory lives on as others
continue to tradition of local history in his footsteps.
