George Birrell

George trained at the Glasgow School of Art (1967 - 1971) then taught art and design in Scottish schools for the next decade and has been painting full time since 1980. 

The architecture and landscape of Scotland feature in his current collection of work. He is particularly inspired by the small towns and fishing villages of Fife from his earliest introduction to this historic area as an art student. 

Beyond Scotland, he particularly enjoys painting Provencal landscapes and the coastline of the Mediterranean region around Marseilles.
