Mick Cawston   

Mick Cawston was born in 1959 at Dagenham, Essex.

He moved to a farm cottage in Burnham on Crouch in about 1983  and started to capture the images of dogs and animals around in real and caricature modes.

He visited many local markets to sell his paintings for a few pounds each.

By 1987 he became an established artist recognised as the No1 Dog and Horse painter in the country.

He moved to Lynton in Devon swapping the rich marshland of Essex for Exmoor but sadly he died in 2006.

Mick has had many exhibitions and his works hang in galleries all over the world.

Some of his painting is still to be found enlivening homes in Burnham .
