His career includes 22 solo exhibitions to date; in addition to numerous group shows both nationally and internationally. Among the awards received are the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy Guthrie Award for painting and the Royal Scottish Academy Morton Award. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Raab Gallery Berlin, The Scottish Gallery and at the Royal Scottish Academy for the Edinburgh International Festival contribution in 2010.
