Oil on Canvas
Ian was born in Glasgow and graduated from Glasgow School of Art. Thereafter, having attended Jordanhill Education Centre, entered the teaching profession to become, for some 10 years, the Head of Art & Design in King's Park Secondary School, a large Glasgow comprehensive secondary school.He left teaching in 1997 to devote himself totally to the pursuit of his own artistic career. Ian now visits, and gains much inspiration from, the Island of Mallorca and from Italy, sharply contrasting environments from that of his native shores. He exhibits widely throughout Britain and has work in Collections in Spain, Canada and the United States.
Of late he entered a world-wide landscape painting competition in the art magazine "International Artist" and was one of the ten finalists. He received a certificate of authenticity, and one of his works was published in their recent edition (Feb-March 2003), with the possibility of a full article some time in the future.
