Alastair Faulkner

My name is Alastair Faulkner and I’m an artist and surgeon based in Dundee. I graduated with a degree in Medicine from The University of Edinburgh in 2012 and I currently work in NHS Tayside where I'm training to be a trauma and orthopaedic surgeon. As a largely self-taught artist, my last art qualification was a GCSE in Art and Design at Secondary School obtained in 2004. I have also undertaken a portrait and figurative painting course at the Florence Academy of Art. After pursuing photography for many years I returned to painting in 2016 and started painting scenes around Scotland. I enjoy painting expressive landscapes and city scenes at night and the two works I hope to exhibit are excellent examples of this. They are "Queen's View" and "Sunset on the Banks of the Clyde"
