From Lanarkshire, Scotland. Born 1953. Painting, drawing and illustration are my principal artistic passions, with watercolour and gouache my preferred media for painting, but I also work in acrylic and pastels.
I have created illustrations for books and magazines (and am currently working on some illustrations for book projects of my own). An illustrated book on the Crinan Canal, 'A Shrew Danced On My Paintbox' is available to purchase online. I have also been involved in a number of public artworks and projects. My wife Gill started The Oystercatcher Gallery in Campbeltown, Argyll in 1989 and until recently we sold many of our paintings there. Now, after a period of working from home, we have a small Studio and Gallery, Love Dove Studio, in Lochgilphead.
