David is a retired teacher, having run the Physics department at Campbeltown Grammar School for many years. He has been creative his whole life, making furniture, guitars, mandolins, model boats, playing music and painting.
Living in Kintyre since 1980, it is impossible not to have a relationship with the sea, and David has kayaked extensively around Kintyre's coast, landing on many of the Hebridean Islands, and across to the Antrim Coast. He also spent several years competing internationally as part of the Scottish Surf Kayak squad.
His paintings, mainly oils or acrylics, depict the sea in all it's moods, from violent storms to tranquil sunsets, and are inspired by the gorgeous views readily available on our doorstep
