About the artist

Graham in Paris

Independent painter living and working in the United Kingdom


I was born in Scotland. I have lived in Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Yorkshire where I currently live.

I was educated at the University of Leeds, England and Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland.

When not painting I create commercial digital content. I enjoy travelling and have travelled to Denmark, France, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Malta, Norway, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Czech Republic, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Estonia, Russia, Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia, Australia, Singapore, India, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, United States of America and Canada.

My artistic influences include Gauguin, Vermeer, Van Dyck, Van Gogh, Rousseau, Hopper, Basquiat and many more.

Everyone needs inspiration and here are the artists and works which inspired me.

My artistic statement

I believe that art of all kinds is food for the soul.

My aim is to make art which follows the ABC of art:

  • Accessible
  • Beautiful
  • Contentful

As I and my work develop and change I will continue to paint and see where the journey takes me.

During the COVID pandemic I have been making a video diary of some of the things I have been up to. Here it is.
