Tobias Wilkinson MRSS
I was born and grew up in North London in a thriving artistic household. My father was a painter who was the son of the marine artist Norman Wilkinson. He met and married my mother, a fellow art student from the Byam Shaw Art School, where he taught the Foundation Course. My other grandfather Hugh Pawle was a successful stained glass artist with a busy studio in Circus Road in St John’s Wood. Both my grandmothers and many other relations were also artists, including St Ives painter Margaret Mellis and the potter, Anne Stokes: this proved a fertile environment for a unique, if slightly overloaded, visual upbringing.
I am a graduate of Central St Martins College of Art (BA) and the London College of Communication(MA)
