I do love painting. I find skill and passion, in what ever field, my biggest influence. I  recently visited the Liotard exhibition, wow that dude could paint!

I studied at Glasgow School of Art and I still live and work in Glasgow as it’s a great place to be an artist, and to live.

Sometimes it is hard to be a painter. I have so many ideas, and often they don’t work. I can’t stop though, I want to be a good painter. I would be miserable doing anything else. I’ve one shot at this, so I’m going for it.

I had a short correspondence with Sir Dirk Bogarde when I was a kid and looking for some guidance. He said, it takes 7 years to become a doctor and 72 years to become a reasonable actor.

I think I know what he meant now, but he certainly was more than that!
