Born in Blairgowrie, Glen studied architecture at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, in Dundee. Graduated with an Honors Degree in Architecture and practiced architecture, in Edinburgh, for twenty-five years before changing his career to something more rewarding. His main focus is on landscape works but has a wide range to his portfolio which includes portraiture, abstract, architecture and still life.

Lindsey Lavender

Lindsey is an award winning painter. Originally an architect she has a passion for buildings and the spaces in between such as stairways, doorways, arches, bridges, points of transition and thresholds. She is interested in the way in which light interacts with the mundane: the transformative effect of sunlight and shade on something very ordinary; essential elements upon which we tend not to focus. She paints the aspects of our urban landscape which underpin the rest – the infrastructure which remains the same over decades whilst allowing the city to shift, change and develop over time.
