Dave spent his childhood in Keyham but left Plymouth in the 1970s and finally returned in 2011. Between May 2012 and May 2103 Dave painted 365 pictures outdoors on the coast path in a year. With this project completed Dave continues to paint out doors in the South West but his current focus is his new project creating portraits of musicians.
Dave Crocker’s love of the Northern Soul music genre has led him to develop a unique range of portraits featuring many of the musical heroes as well as a number of iconic images. Appearances at regular Northern Soul Weekenders has created a unique market for both his originals and prints including images associated with the Mods and Quadraphenia, with the complete range available at Kaya Gallery.
