Charles Neal was born in Surrey in 1951. He lived in Wallington and nearby Beddington until his move to the Cotswolds in 1983. From the age of 14 he studied art and for a period of ten years worked under the guidance of Malcolm Domingo and Frances Lane-Mason. Then came the decision to follow his own path, to develop a more personal style and technique.
Charles has travelled widely in England and Europe looking for new aspects of the landscape in all its moods. Gloucestershire, where he now lives with his wife and family, has been the source of endless inspiration. He has Exhibited in London and extensively in North America. His work has been hung at the Royal Society of British Artists and is now represented in many private and corporate collections.
He has held exhibitions in conjunction with the National Trust and had exhibitions opened by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Simon Hornby (President of the R.H.S) and David Suchet.
