Noel Gregory began his career studying at High Wycombe College of Art and Bournemouth Teacher Training College, and for twenty-five years he owned an art gallery in Buckinghamshire, UK dealing with Victorian pictures and ultimately his own work. Specialising in oil painting, Noel became a successful and highly respected artist in his own right, working from his studio in Spain where he lived, and selling his work internationally. Noel wrote many books, published by Search Press, introducing artists of all abilities to the joys of oil painting. He sadly died in late 2017, but his wonderful sense of humour and joie de vivre will remain long in the memories of all who knew him.
