up in the north east of Scotland, Ian paints mainly as a hobby,
working with acrylics on a variety of supports. The images Ian creates
are fairly large as he likes to incorporate a lot of detail into
his work. On closer inspection he likes the viewer to discover detail,
maybe not apparent at first, as the work is viewed more closely.
Ian tends to work from photographs, taken in the most by him, from
many different angles, as this gives him the flexibility to be creative.
He then chooses one to work from that he thinks will create the
best dynamic image for the composition of the painting. After starting
work on a painting, Ian will also incorporate other elements to
give the final painting a "story" and therefore making
it of greater interest.
Please take a look round the site where you will see previous examples
of Ian's work, this includes some earlier paintings in the "gallery"
and motorcycle/vehicle paintwork in "otherstuff".
If you like the style of Ian's work and would like to commission
him for a painting he can be contacted via email by clicking the

stresses that even though his current favourite is a V Twins from
the good ol' US of A, he is more than happy to do a painting of
any make or type, no matter what the country of origin is.
