David Hosking was born in Cornwall and has lived in Porthleven for over thirty years. He was a student at Falmouth School of Art, completing his art education at West Midlands College. He taught in Plymouth and then Helston. After taking early retirement from his teaching career in 1995, he was able to focus on his painting. In his work he creates 'strong emotive compositions with strong shapes and rich colours'.
Hosking's paintings have been exhibited at Falmouth Arts Centre and the Picture House Gallery, St Ives.
