NOTE - As an artist Oakley received many commissions throughout the world. A relatively late starter in the art world he came of note by winning the prestigious Singer and Friedlander Sunday Times Watercolour Contest in 1999. He was offered a position at the Slade School of Art in London but had to put this on hold during the war. However back in civilian life he took his place at the Slade and won several prizes there. In 1952 he was appointed Art Master at the Eden School of Carlisle and from there became the Assistant Head Designer at Ferguson Fabrics. In 1957 he staged an exhibition of watercolours at the Crane Kalman Gallery of Manchester, causing quite a considerable stir with a painting of a nude. Regardless of this, the exhibition was a sell out and had been opened by none other than L.S. Lowry who bought one of the paintings in the exhibition and donated it to the Salford Art Gallery. He eventually became the lecturer in Fine Art at the Belfast college of Art and continued to paint throughout his life.
