Welcome to our world!

Artist Duo Carolyn King and Philip Clayton of LEGASSICK STUDIO
Creators of original art work.

Philip trained at Barnet college, Sir John Cass, and Central St. Martins’. Throughout his career he has headed several departments of Art and Design, Media and performing arts as well as lecturing in London and the Provinces.

Exhibiting and selling widely, he concentrates on recording the environment, especially landscape, using the medium of oil paint en ‘plein-air’ wherever he happens to be (the deep snows of Scotland in winter, the heat of summer in rural France or on a pontoon in the middle of a venetian canal!) capturing the atmosphere in an ever changing world.

Never afraid of putting his easel up and just getting ‘on with it’ he is respected both a home and abroad for his fresh approach to this forgotten and challenging practice, which has in the past resulted in numerous private exhibitions and sales as well as culturally enriching his abstract work.
Philip has recently shown new French work and a selection from his Lyme series....and is working for 2 new invited solo shows in 2014
Philip is also available for private mentoring and portfolio consultation for artists who also like to work 'en Plein Air'.

Carolyn trained at Sir John Cass, Central St. Martins’ and Chelsea Schools of Art and Design. and her work often shows a serious sense of fun and a real love of drawing.
She has written and lectured on art in several Colleges both in the provinces and London where she and Philip ran a successful teaching studio and gallery.
