George Busby Dockyard tank engine Restoration shed GW prairie tank

George Busby was born in Birmingham in 1926 and still lives and works in the West Midlands. For many years he was engaged as a graphic designer and illustrator. In 1978 he left the advertising world to take up painting full time.

He works mainly in watercolour and gouache covering a wide variety of subject matter, however, the industrial scene remains his favourite with railways in particular.
He has been commissioned to illustrate corporate calendars by major institutions and businesses and was represented in a series entitled "British Watercolours" - a collection of greetings cards and calendars featuring some of his finest work.

He exhibits regularly in London galleries, the Midlands, Cumbria and North Wales. His work is included in the National Library of Wales and in numerous private collections.
As well as being a member of the Guild of Railway Artists, George is also a member of the Chartered Society of Designers, the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

It is with much sadness that we report George Busby died on November 9th 2005.
