Born in Greenock, emigrated to Australia and England but always home sick for Scotland. Returned to Scotland and will never leave again. College lecturer, author, photographer and artist. Mark Gillan is blind in one eye, battling complete blindness and raises money for charity through various activities including art. Mark Gillan is also known as Jock the Artist and signs all artwork accordingly. It is the love of his sight that drives his artwork, loving colour and form, appreciating the world around him more than most due to illness. Mark Gillan has had many psychic medium experiences and pulls from paranormal activities into his art...strange... maybe ... different ... aye!
