Welcome and many thanks for visiting my site, I hope it gives you an insight into how I work and is informative as well as engaging.

I am a contemporary Artist and Illustrator based in Beaconsfield, England where I live with my wife, three children and our dog. 

 

Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland I left school to study Interior Design in conjunction with a part time course at Glasgow School of Art.

I went on to work in professional practice for a number of years before deciding to specialise in Architectural and Interior rendering

.

I enjoyed many years working on some of the biggest architectural projects globally before deciding to concentrate on my first love, Fine Art.

 

I enjoyed some early success with a portrait accepted and shortlisted for the prestigeous 2014 BP Portrait competition. I entered an won the BBC1 Big Painting Cahllenge in 2015 which if nothing else provided an exposure I hadnt enjoyed to date.

 

 I've since gone on to exhibit locally a nationally selling work throughout the United Kingdom.

Richard Bacon and Pam St Clement discuss my portrait of her during filming of the BBC1 Big Painting Challenge. I think she approved! 

 

 

 

My proudest career achievement having two paintings from the Big Painting Challenge exhibited in Tate Britain, London.
