One of the UK’s longest established aviation artists, having entered the profession on a full time basis in 1969.  Gerald Coulson’s work is underpinned by a thorough knowledge of aircraft and flying.  Having trained as an aircraft engineer during 8 years serving with the RAF, he went on to work with civilian aircraft and to qualify as a pilot.  Gerald’s artistic skills have all been self-taught.  His ability to draw accurately led to him into a successful role as an illustrator for civil and military technical aircraft manuals.   Subsequently evolving his painting skills has enabled Gerald Coulson to become one of the world’s best known aviation artists.
