Scott Naismith graduated in 2000 with a BDes in Illustration and printmaking and has been a full-time artist working from his studio in Glasgow ever since. He is also a lecturer at the Creative Arts department of West College Scotland. With the lochs and glens of the West coast of Scotland as his favourite subject matter, Scott regularly travels around the country looking for inspiration for another landscape painting. His latest work focuses on transitional skies and the colours that emerge as light breaks through cloud. Energetic brush work combines with vivid colours resulting in fantastically vibrant prints. These skies that change from dark to light are Scott's metaphor for optimism and hope. Regularly exhibiting across Scotland, England and the USA, Scott has built an incredible worldwide following of more than 11,000 subscribers and over 1.4 million views on YouTube for his demonstration and tuition videos. Scott’s approach to painting draws upon a tremendous energy and positivity, which is reflected in the themes of hope and optimism that infuse his work.
