Archie Wardlaw is a contemporary painter specialising in portraiture, landscapes and still life paintings. Having first studied Classics and Philosophy with Mandarin at the University of Exeter he trained for five years in the Classical Atelier method at London Fine Art Studios where he then went to teach over a period of 6 years. Archie’s breadth of subject matter is explored with the same fascination for capturing light and through that observation understanding both people and place. 

Archie now teaches at Wellington College, Berkshire and continues to paint portraits and landscapes to commission.
