Thanks for visiting!

I have been painting in acrylic and oil since the early 1990′s but professionally since 2003, and selling commissioned portraits online since 2004. Today however I paint using a dedicated art tablet & pen, requiring many of the same skills I developed using oil and acrylic, but far quicker and with less mess than traditional painting!

Dedicated to Stevie.

It's all about bold brushstrokes and colour, for me. Looking at a painting, seeing a mass of bold brushstrokes that up close hold no discernible form. But step back and you can see a different painting, hopefully something to make you gasp ... that's what I aspire to, one day.

I am a Scottish artist who tries - often unsuccessfully! - to create bold and colorful art. In particular I love portraits, of people and pets. I started painting portraits as a career rather than a hobby because of my friend Stevie, who in the mid 90's asked me to paint his two labrador retrievers as a present for his stepmother. He insisted I could do it, and told me I could make a career from art.

10 years later I decided I could actually do it for real. And again, Stevie was the catalyst. Seriously ill in hospital in 2004 he asked me to work on 2 paintings for him, of his family. He only saw one of them completed.

Stevie always insisted I should be painting, doing what I really loved. Painting has always been my one passion, the one thing that keeps me up working until dawn. So my art career since 2004 is 100% thanks to Stevie, and this store and the art within are dedicated to him.

Thank you so much for visiting my ScottieInspired store!

All of my custom portraits are hand painted by me using a digital art pen and tablet - no photoshop filters! I have been painting in acrylic and oil since the early 1990′s but professionally since 2003, and selling commissioned portraits since 2004. Today however I paint using a dedicated art tablet. An art pen & tablet still requires the same skill from the artist, but removes many of the problems with traditional painting, eg no more nasty chemicals and oil paints. I particularly love bold and bright dog and cat art, and will be adding to my listings constantly.

So check back soon!
