Â°1947 at Gravesend,Kent England.
Educated and â??artschooledâ? in Cheltenham.
â??When I was Young I remember Cheltenham as very Edwardian in Style, it made a very strong impression on me,later I made several paintings of townâ??s cafes and restaurantsâ?
After graduating in Cheltenham, Giles moved to London to spend a post graduate year at Goldsmithâ??s college studying teaching.
There followed a spell of 15 years teaching Art & Design at a large comprehensive school in S.London.
â??I was very lucky to join a strong team in an exellent Art Department.
Most of us were part-time and used any spare time for painting.
It was a great to work with other artist and exhibit together.â?
In 1987 he started working with Freeform Art Works- Compagny, then making decorative hoardings for propert companies, now producing more permanent public art works.
â??Itâ??s always good fun working with Freeform, as the commssions are so different, you learn new skills all the time, and like teaching.
I â??m working with other artistsâ?.
From 1976 onwards, he regularly exhibited with galleries in Belgium but his work has rarely been show in UK.
