Gavin graduated with a BA Hons Fine Art (painting and drawing) from Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee and that is where he now lives with his family. He is renowned for his remarkable still life paintings and his paintings of the Scottish landscape. Working traditionally from sketches which he sees as “a great way to learn the craft of painting from life" he has a great skill in taking very commonplace objects and places and turning them into glorious works of art. Gavin also likes to paint out-of-doors finding inspiration in the changing light and the many challenges the landscape affords. His latest collection of paintings present a stimulating and insightful window on aspects of Scottish life and the Scottish landscape. Gavin has been a regular exhibitor at Resipole Studios since the gallery opened.
