William Oxer FRSA, Exeter, United-Kingdom45 years oldA passionate artist driven by traditional ideas of how beauty should be represented, William formed the intellectual basis to his work under the tutelage of Professor Regius Peter Davidson of Oxford University.

William travelled widely through Europe with Peter and his wife, Professor Jane Stevenson, effectively being given a Grand Tour as a fair swap for his driving skills. After graduating, William was offered a place at the Prince of Wales' Institute of Architecture but was advised by them to take the position of assistant to Alec Cobbe, artist, restorer and collector.

Living in at Hatchlands Park, Surrey where The Cobbe Collection is based, William was to assist in various projects including an exhibition for the Queens Gallery, Buckingham Palace and large-scale designs for interiors in historic houses such as Goodwood House, Petworth House and Hatchlands Park. He lived at the latter for approximately eight months back in 1996, working with restorer and interiors expert, Alec Cobbe.

Over the past 25 years, this talented 44-year-old, originally from Dorset, has undertaken regular portrait commissions for private clients and produced artworks for exhibitions and collectors across the globe. Other achievements of note include period decoration and exhibition design in places such as Christie's and the Building of Bath Museum, also known as The Museum of Bath Architecture.

Professor Sir Roger Scruton, a renowned writer and philosopher who made a television documentary in 2009 entitled Why Beauty Matters, said of him: “William Oxer is not merely a painter; he is a distinctive sensibility, with a poetic vision he explores in many media. His art is affirmative, evocative and forgiving and offers us, in short, a return to the true and serious tradition.”
