Jack is the most successful and popular Scottish artist in history. Recognition has come not only through astonishing sales of his work, but in a variety of other ways too; he has been awarded an OBE, holds an honorary degree from the University of St Andrew's, and his private collectors range from his compatriot Robbie Coltrane to Hollywood superstar Jack Nicholson. When his famous painting "The Singing Butler" sold for £744,800 at the Sotheby's Spring Sale he became the subject of a BBC South Bank Show entitled
‘The People's Painter’. Born in Fife in 1951 he left school at 16 to take up a career as a mining engineer. He took up painting as a hobby in his early twenties and the rest they say is history.The whole world recognises his Singing Butler painting and many more artworks that have been sold over the years have almost become iconic images of certain eras. Well, now you can buy Jack's work at Arthouse Gallery. All pieces are signed and numbered by Jack and all come with exceptional presentation.
