You’re from Scotland originally? What brought you to London?
I felt frustrated and a bit constrained by my career in Scotland. I was really hacking around trying to make ends meet doing commissions of anything whilst pushing my romantic landscapes without much success. I guess I realised that galleries were not going to be weighing in on them. So time to change. Move and change.
Do you miss the peace and quiet?
Not really, quite happy adapting to different environments. I find London exciting.
No, I was pretty sure I wanted to play basketball but not that well equipped in reaching that goal. I’ve always been a dreamer though so painting that place, somewhere else, seemed like a decent option.
