About Us

I have many years of experience of portrait painting and drawing and have completed many commissions for clients locally and around the world.

I have been painting and drawing from an early age and joined the local art club( Muirhead art club )  as a junior member 

I was still a member at age 20 when 

I was then asked to teach evening classes which i did for several years.

Around this time I was also attending Glagow School of Art evening classes for portraiture.

I have also taught art design and dtp.at a training centre run by Cumbernauld Development Corporation.

I have been trained as an old fashioned signwriter / artist (before personal computers ) working on giant advertising billboards for major brand names and have had other art related employment throughout the years and am highly experienced and vesatile as I have been involved in art and art projects for many years now.

I also paint murals and specialist finishes for businesses ,art projects etc.and have worked in many locations in London and around Britain on a variety of projects.

You can commission fabulous realistic portrait paintings and drawings of people and pet portraits from your photos direct from the Glasgow artist.
