My name is Iain Vellacott and I paint in oils, mainly in my studio in the south west of France.

7 years ago my wife, Pamela Rose, and I decided to move from Oxfordshire to the south-west of France. We now live in the centre of Revel where our 3 children (Guy (17), Edward (16) and James (14)) attend the local College and Lycee.

One of the principal drivers behind the move to France was to allow me to devote myself more fully to my painting.

Over the past few years I have exhibited in a number of galleries in France, including Galerie Roger Betti (Toulouse), Gallery Kaye (Carcassonne) and smaller galleries in Revel, Soreze and Leucate. 

I have also had a number of exhibitions in the UK, including at the Barnes Riverside Gallery and at Winchester College.
