Philip Raskin studied at The Glasgow School of Art. He spent many years in business; first in the clothing industry then as a restaurateur in Glasgow. He is also an accomplished musician.
Philip has returned full-time to his easel and brushes and has quickly established a singular handwriting, in which he succeeds in combining the weight and presence of acrylic paint with a subtlety more usually achieved in watercolour. The overall landscape effect captures quite magically the texture and ethereal quality of his native Scotland and he is rapidly achieving a loyal following.
