Rob Hefferan

Born in 1968 in Warrington, Cheshire, Rob Hefferan is an exceptionally talented and versatile artist. Better known for his figurative paintings, his work not only captures the unique character and warmth of each subject, but transcends form to suggest the living, breathing essence of the individual.

Working predominately with oils and acrylics, Rob’s work is both eminently understandable and intensely familiar. Colour, light and texture harmonise intelligently and with stunning candour to produce works that resonate with vibrant life.

As a young boy growing up in Warrington, Rob was the only member of his family with artistic talent. With a single mindedness rare in one so young, he was always convinced that his path in life would lead towards artistic fulfilment. The prehistoric magnificence of dinosaurs became an absorbing fascination for Rob, capturing the awesome presence of these larger than life creatures gave Rob hours of pleasure and allowed him to practice and hone his developing skills. 

As his passion for drawing and painting intensified, he spent many fulfilling hours on family holidays in Cornwall, nourishing his love of art as he captured the changing seascapes of Bude and the surrounding area. His memories of this time, conjure up feelings of completeness, both within the landscape working as a budding artist and as a valued member of a closely knit family.
