Donald Macleod is a Glasgow based artist who studied at the Glasgow School of Art (Drawing and painting) in the late 70s. He then spent time working in Surrey during the 80s and returned to Scotland in 1990 as a studio assistant to artist Peter Howson and has worked full time as an artist since 1995. Donald has developed a keen eye for the basic truths in Scottish tales, poems and myths. His portraits give the observer an insight to the nature of the subject. His work is widely regarded and can be found in many collections, both private and public, in Europe and North America.
