Born in Rochdale in 1930, Maurice Greenwood originally trained in technical

"I have exhibited
nationally in Wales and across the United Kingdom, with work in private and
public collections both nationally and internationally.
My method of working has always been from direct observation of
the subject, originally I would paint on site, but now I tend to draw with soft
pencil or ink then add the various tones within the drawing. I am not trying to
give a photographic accuracy, but to pass onto the viewer, my feelings and
emotions of the subject."
