I was born in Govan, Glasgow, and studied art part time in the early sixties.
After many decades working in engineering and oil and gas exploration and production, I eventually returned to my true passion of drawing and painting and now work as a full time artist in the north east of Scotland. I also have a strong interest in engineering related art and am intrigued by the effects light plays on steel and and man-made structures, and how reflections can change your perception of reality. I work in both acrylics and oils and use mixed media for my illustration work.
My art is heaviIy influenced by the 20th centuary realist movements.
