Fletcher Sibthorp was born in Hertfordshire, England in 1967. In 1989, he graduated with an Honours Degree in Graphic Design and Illustration from Kingston University.
Fletcher has worked as a full-time artist for the past twenty years, producing work in the commercial market, as well as selling paintings to private and corporate collectors. Rank Xerox, British Telecom, Chase Manhatten Bank, Railtrack and Kirin Brewery are just a few of the companies that own his paintings as part of their collections.  Initially, Fletcher was attracted by the concept of movement and its effect on the human form. This naturally lead to his interest in sport and abstract portrayals of gymnasts and athletes, culminating in an exhibition ' In Motion ' in London in 1992. Fletcher was approached by Sadlers Wells in 1995, to produce a painting for the Flamenco dance troupe Paco Pena. The movement and the expressive quality in his work complemented the passion of Flamenco. Fletcher was immediately drawn into the energy of the dance, producing many painting on that theme.
However, Fletcher has recently become more interested in the figure alone, its subtleties and the infinite expressions. As he says, " I'm interested in taking a figure, placing it in an abstract space and from these simple elements, creating a narrative. I like to think that when people view the paintings, they will add their own emotions and from these, create their own interpretations."

Recently Fletcher's work has concentrated further on his own personal creative vision. He is passionate about the direction in which his work is heading. "Even though the work, in its content, is becoming simpler, the paintings are harder to resolve, as the underlying expression becomes harder to achieve. Even I don't know how they will develop. They take on their own life, creating their own spirituality."
