Erni Upton

A Scot, born in Ayrshire in 1936, he has been painting since childhood. Schooled at Ayr Grammar & Ayr Academy, much of his youth was spent with the fisherfolk of West Scotland & their boats and he still cruises these waters each year.
He trained at Glasgow School of Art, where he studied under Donaldson, Mathieson & Robertson.
His work reflects their influences & those of the Scottish colourists who like him, spent much time in the wonderful light & colours of the West Coast.
Painting in this tradition, he works with oils on canvas, using both brush & knife.
In 1985, after many years in banking, he returned to Art & Design when he established an interior design company in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
He continued to work in oils, mainly commissions for corporate & private clients, but it was not until 1999, when the company was sold, that more time became available for painting.

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, London, in November 2004.
