He is a traditional English oil painter who has shown his work at Kennaway House every year since it reopened after refurbishment in 2009, so this is his 10th anniversary exhibition.

He has developed his skills over the years by capturing the architecture of cities including London, Paris, Prague, Bruges and particularly Venice, one of his favourite locations. In his work he strives to capture the atmosphere and the light.

Mr Crisp's work has been displayed in many private and public galleries including the Mall Gallery and the Royal Academy. His work is in private collections in the UK and abroad.

The Kennaway House exhibition comprises new paintings of Venice, as well as scenes closer to home of Dartmoor, Somerset and Sidmouth.
