I am a Scottish artist who has enjoyed a varied career. I graduated from Glasgow School of Art 1993, and worked as a bouncer, a chef, a stonemason and a blacksmith before returning to art 1999 to set up Perfect Circle, a commercial fine art company. Perfect Circle ran for 15 years, alongside Maryhill Art School which I set up with two other tutors. At the same time I set up and ran Strange Frames, a bespoke framing company. I spent 15 years collaborating with my hero, the Scottish artist and writer Alasdair Gray on his visual work and public projects. I’ve also worked for Oscar winning film designers, made huge mosaics and murals acted as the arts consultant for infrastructure projects. I now live in the countryside working from a studio that I built during lockdown, and painting the Scottish landscape among other passions.

It’s designed to be made and then mosaiced by the three communities that are being rejoined by the new wonderful bridge at Stockingfield Junction.
