| Graham is a Yorkshire-born portrait artist and scenic painter, currently living and working in Birmingham, UK. A graduate of Edinburgh University and Art College he has been painting professionally since 2000 and over that time has built up an excellent reputation through many private and public commissions, as well as exhibitions and projects.
His portraits have been shown twice in the Royal Portrait Society Annual Exhibition (including examples of his oils and pastels) and he was elected a Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2017, with whom he also frequently shows his work.
In recent years Graham has developed an interest in pastel pet portriats, particularly enjoying painting dogs of all varieties and attending Crufts each year for pedigree source material.
He is also a Guild Commended Picture Framer and frames all of his own work.
His scenic artwork has ranged from work in film, theatre, theme parks, bars and restaurants. Highlights have included working on two Spielberg movies, producing a series of portraits for an exclusive Mayfair club/restaurant and working on the Strictly Come Dancing Tour stage set and the Brits (2018). He has painted murals, textured/aged wall effects, environments and 3D props. Since 2015 he has worked frequently for Artscene Creative and is grateful to Jon Goodwin for giving him his start in the industry and for all his guidance and support.
