Self-taught wildlife painter in oil. Began full-time painting career in 1981, working from a studio in Inverness-shire. Specialises in painting Highland landscapes with red deer and game birds usually prominent. His paintings have a strong dramatic impact without deferring to the brightly picturesque. Mist is more common than sunlight while occasional shafts of sunshine add to the realism – the reason for the artist’s established reputation both in Britain and North America. Several works have illustrated the front covers of sporting publications.
