Alistair graduated from the Art College of the University of Ulster in 1992 in and first worked as a graphic designer and later in exhibition and interior design.
A life long love of the sea and boats led him to move to the south coast of England in 2010 to additionally train as a boat builder where he settled and currently lives in Devon working in the marine industry and painting. Painting has remained a constant in Alistair's life with inspiration coming from the moment.
Working around boats provides a constant source of inspiration and his mix of training in design, illustration and boat construction has provided a unique understanding and ability to bring the beauty and symmetry of boat construction to canvas in oils.
He has exhibited at a number of galleries and professional group exhibitions mainly in Ireland and is now pleased to exhibit his work with Kendalls Fine Art in Cowes where he spends much time involved in boating and boat construction.
