Calum was born in 1932 and brought up in the Highlands of Scotland where he has lived all his life. From early childhood he has always been fascinated by the sea and its ever-changing moods. He also has a great love and appreciation of the Scottish mountain scenery and his greatest delight is to be walking the glens or climbing ‘Munros’ (hills over 3000 ft).
Only in the year 2000 did he find time to take up painting seriously and has exhibited extensively in Scotland as well as with us in Woodstock. Many of his paintings have been purchased by clients from abroad.
All his work is done by knife - stemming from an impromptu lesson given by the great Welsh artist, the late Sir Kyffin Williams, in 1965.
