An important early work was exhibited in the coveted Mackintosh building before it was destroyed by fire in 2018. One of the early winners of the Jolomo Awards, he was recognised as a rising star in Scotland. Public examples of his work can be seen in the Standard Life building in Edinburgh, 118 Piccadilly Building in London, and Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge. He was featured in the BBC documentary ‘Glasgow Boys’ which brought his work to a wider audience along with interviews for BBC radio, public exhibitions and artist interviews. He was a contributor to the international Folkstone Triennial, and has exhibited during the Edinburgh festival. Periodically he has donated work to aid the ‘Arts’ most notably his support of Scottish Opera, and has contributed to Charity auctions including Heart of Kent Hospice and York Hill Childrens foundation, Glasgow. He has exhibited widely in the Uk and internationally to both critical and commercial acclaim.
