Best Selling Published Artist at the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards, 2005.
In 2002, Doug Hyde was a young artist painting pictures for his family and friends in his spare time. In 2005, Doug was named as the UK's best selling published artist and described as the UK's most popular living artist on a BBC TV national news broadcast.
Since then Doug's popularity and profile has increased both at home and abroad, and he has recently returned from a sell-out tour in Japan. Yet despite his phenomenal success he has never lost touch with the realities of life, and has continued to produce work based around his love for his family, his unfailing optimism and his sheer enthusiasm for life.
