Favouring oils and acrylics as his medium, his work has a depth of character that lends itself to a mind full of questions and shows off a talent that has blossomed over the years into a style all of its own.

His fascination for modern film noir can be seen in every painting with its subtle touches of color in the darkness making him one of the most recognizable artists of his style and form.


Knowing JP personally is like opening a Pandora’s box of images, his home is an artistic dream combined with a family home making it both welcoming and a little gallery in its own right.

Formally a gallery owner himself, JP decided to take a risk and close his shop focusing on selling through his website and a range of UK galleries,  which has allowed him the flexibility to create such a diverse body of work and of course accept commissions from clients.   

A respected member of the community and of course occasional arts pundit, he has showcased a warmth of personality that makes him approachable yet enigmatic, a neat trick to pull off in the social media age.

Creatively driven and a consummate artist, JP continues to be a visionary in the Scottish arts scene avoiding the usual traps and bringing forth art that is both stylish and contemporary without being twee and parochial, instead shows a sensitivity and worldview that is wholly universal in its appeal.
