I've always been interested in art and sketched from a very early age and whilst at secondary school my artwork was exhibited at the world famous Glasgow's Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery coming second place in a national competition. Subsequent years took me in another direction employment wise and although I still painted for myself, in recent years I have returned to my passion with a vengeance. I now work as a professional artist. With my Facebook page and website up and running and can be found selling my art in and around the Glasgow and Inverclyde area of Scotland at various art markets whilst occasionally being invited to exhibit in Galleries as part of a bigger networking scene with other artists too. As much as I love the personal interaction with customers, I realize the importance of online exposure and ArtGallery.co.uk comes highly recommended by my peers. Regarding my art, being surrounded by beautiful architecture and Scottish scenery I can't help but feel inspired to paint it and so my usual work is Scottish city/land and seascapes although I also venture into occasional portrait and figurative work too in various medium but mostly acrylics, watercolour and soft pastel and I also sell quality fine art prints and other merchandise of my work too. At the moment I would describe my art as realism but I can see my art changing in the future as I like to challenge myself and step out of my comfort zone and feel this is crucial in my development as a working artist and in getting connected with potential art loving customers around the world, for my art has sold as far away as Japan and the USA as well as at home.
