George Winter had a successful career as an actor before illness took his life in a different direction. He achieved a place at Bristol University as a mature student and studied for three years gaining a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art. Since leaving Bristol Winter has exhibited widely in Somerset. His drawings were exhibited in consecutive years at The Cheltenham Open Drawing competition (before it became The Jerwood Drawing Prize). His paintings are broadly impressionist, and inspired by landscape, both local and from his travels.
