I am a professional artist based in Glasgow, Scotland, best known for my large  and expressionistic interpretations of horse racing.

I strive to capture energy, movement and drama in my work and I have developed a distinctive style that is unique in the genre of contemporary equine art. I have also applied this style to the varied fields of architecture and cityscapes, motor racing, boxing, and other sports.

In 2010 I created Fine Art Live, an innovative and engaging addition to corporate and fundraising events.

During the course of an event I create a new piece of art (often a large painting on canvas) and the finished work is then auctioned for the event holder's chosen charity.

You can read about my latest projects in the News section or, to see more images of my work, please see the Galleries section.

Thanks for visiting,
