Although brought up in Warwickshire, Berrisford Hill spent his school holidays on his uncle’s farm in Leicestershire, learning about nature and the countryside. Whenever opportunity arose Berrisford would spend time drawing and painting.
In those early years he wanted to train as an architect, but his love of the countryside led him to take up painting. With five years training at Winchester and Southampton University, Berrisford Hill obtained a degree which set him on the road to a career in art. For some 20 years Berrisford taught art and painting and he exhibited his work only when he had the time. Finally he decided to take the plunge and become a full-time artist.
Berrisford Hill’s first exhibition as a professional painter was at the CLA Game Fair at Stowe. It was here that he showcased his particular interest in game birds. It was almost a total sell out and the success he enjoyed at this exhibition, gave him the determination to continue as a sporting and wildlife painter. Berrisford’s work continues to grow in popularity.
