Simon Laurie

Simon Laurie was born in 1964 in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art between 1982 and 1987 followed by a two-year postgraduate degree. Everyday objects and the ever-changing landscape inspire 
his very individual abstract style. Simon's paintings are a fusion of the purity and formalism of the St Ives School with the rich colourist tradition of Scotland. He has won a number of prestigious awards at the Scottish societies over the last decade. 
He is an elected member of both the Royal Glasgow Institute and the Royal Scottish Society for Painters in Watercolour.
