A delightful, original print artwork. Signed by the artist. C.1960

Born in Dundee and educated at Harris Academy, he attended the Dundee School of Art from 1924-1926 and then Glasgow School of Art where, in 1927, he won a travelling scholarship and prizes for portrait and landscape. In 1929 he took the Painting Diploma, winning a post-diploma scholarship, and became Assistant Art Teacher at Glasgow School of Art 1930-1932.A series of portrait commissions brought him down to London in 1933, and he subsequently referred to these years as the most unsatisfactory period of his artistic life. He became a lecturer at Shoreditch Training College from 1937 until he joined the National Fire Service in 1941. In 1943 he was drafted by the Ministry of Labour to Napier’s Aircraft Factory in Acton where he worked as a technical assistant, aero-engine tester and draughtsman, returning to Shoreditch in 1945 to resume his duties. He was appointed Senior Art Lecturer in 1947 and remained at Shoreditch until 1954. Thereafter he had a number of part-time teaching posts, including Ealing School of Art, St Martin’s School of Art and the Sir John Cass School of Art. He retired in 1974, somewhat reluctantly as he had always enjoyed teaching - and was indeed an inspiring teacher with an unrivalled ability to bring out the best in his students. He was also happy to be a student himself in later life, attending sculpture classes for some years; his stone and marble carvings display his superb feeling for form. His remaining years were spent in West Sussex producing, as always, an amazing amount of work, but now mainly water-colours, drawings, monoprints etc. rather than oil paintings. He was an exceptionally fine figure draughtsman, and this is apparent even in his more abstract and adventurous work. He also enjoyed still-life subjects and there are many examples of these in virtually every medium, including lithographs, screen-prints and monoprints etc.

Antique and vintage goods are both stylish and sustainable. 

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.

Everything we buy interacts with the environment. Second hand furniture and accessories are not only unique, characterful and nostalgic, but also contribute to a sustainable home.
