'Christopher studied Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art. After graduating in 1984 he set up studio in a cottage in the East Lothian countryside and has been working as a full-time professional artist ever since. He currently lives and works in the historic coastal town of Dunbar where his light-filled studio looks directly out across the North Sea.  Christopher’s abstract land and seascapes have at their heart a visual vocabulary which is deeply rooted in nature. To this he allies an obvious love of paint, of colour and texture, of rhythm and form, to create sophisticated, intuitive works that are alternately insistent, lyrical and searingly emotive. With inspiration that is deeply personal and a dogged determination to venture into the unknown, Christopher continues his explorations in paint with exuberant optimism.  Christopher was elected to the RSW in 2006 and is currently Vice-President of the Society of Scottish Artists. Awards include The Armour Award, The James Torrance Memorial Award, The Glasgow Art Club Fellowship and The SSWA Special Award for Painting. His work can be found in many collections both in the UK and abroad and include the Bank of Scotland, United Distillers and Edinburgh University.
