Welcome to the website of Southampton artist William Handley-Garland


Living on England’s South Coast offers many painting opportunities.

Southampton has its busy container port, cruise ship traffic, historic buildings and bustling commercial areas. The waters of the Solent attract thousands of yachts and pleasure boats while those preferring to keep their feet on firm ground can enjoy the quiet villages and scenery of the Isle of Wight and New Forest.

Each in its own way calls for the attention of brush, pencil or pen.

You will find a selection of my paintings in the Gallery including recent work that is available to buy, greetings cards and prints, as well as an archive selection of sold work and pictures from my personal collection.

I hope you enjoy your visit and will keep coming back to view the galleries as new items are added.
