"The most popular living artist in the UK” BBC TV National News

Artist Image 1

In 2002, Doug Hyde was a young artist painting pictures for his family and friends in his spare time. In 2005, Doug Hyde was named as the UK's best selling published artist and described as the UK's most popular living artist on a BBC TV national news broadcast.

Since then Doug's popularity and profile has increased both at home and abroad, and he has recently returned from a sell-out tour in Japan. Yet despite his phenomenal success he has never lost touch with the realities of life, and has continued to produce work based around his love for his family, his unfailing optimism and his sheer enthusiasm for life.

Doug has been featured on television both on the BBC and on Channel 4 as well as on local television and local and national radio describing his unique technique and talking about the people and events that inspire his heart-warming work. Inspired by his own emotional responses to life, Doug's intention is to provoke a positive response in others; his success in this aim can be seen not only by the huge impact his work has made on the British and international art scene, but also by the money he has raised for two important charities - "Look Good…Feel Better" and “Families for Children" - through the sale of his artwork.

In addition to many sell out limited edition artworks and original paintings, Doug has produced three fabulous hardback books, ‘The Man Behind the Smile’ ‘Heart and Soul’ and most recently ‘The Lost Reindeer’, a beautiful book combining fine art and folk tale to stunning effect.

Doug’s extraordinary rise from virtual unknown to the most popular living artist in the UK has been meteoric.His celebrity collectors include golfer Rory McIlroy and Emily Blunt (star of the movie The Devil Wears Prada ).

"I hope people can feel a connection with my work, and share the positive emotions behind it! I am passionate about my work and commit everything to it. I hope that those who buy my work feel the same emotion for it that I do; I hope they love it!"
