Ian Elliot is a delightful painter who shares with us his passion and fascination for the countryside of Tuscany, Mallorca and other enticing Mediterranean destinations. His paintings are executed with great confidence and artistic merit, creating a fusion of shimmering colours, distinctive architectural features and abstract expressionist qualities. Ian won four gold medals for his art prior to training at Glasgow School of Art. He enjoyed a successful teaching career until 1997 and then made a break to pursue his painting full time. Since then his work has become increasingly sought after in his native Scotland where he enjoys increasing presence at prestigious venues including the RSW Exhibition, The Royal Glasgow Institute as well as in group and solo exhibitions.
