j p mclaughlin Artist Bio:

J P McLaughlin Quote from the editor of "British Artists" "The artist seems to have a unique talent that I envy, to paint people is not easy to paint people that ooze feelings is nigh on impossible and yet these people ooze life" Born in Rotten Row Glasgow in Glasgow when the west Coast of Scotland still had an industrial base. This meant spending a childhood surrounded by people working in industry and that gives a very solid grounding for life. You tend to look at things in a very definite way, black is black etc. This attitude is carried into art when you are told things have to be portrayed in a very definite way you are discouraged from looking at art in an any way that might be unrealistic and it was only when I broke away from this line of thinking that my work started to take on a life of its own. HRH Prince Andrew the Artists and the RHF Jett Vivere and I were invited to display the work for Prince Andrew at a presentation in Penicuick Town Hall from 2 Scots invited guests in in May. This was a real honour to be invited to meet HRH Prince Andrew and Jett Vivere and I were delighted by the response we had from evryone there. We have the deepest respect for those that have served in the armed forces and are still on active service. Quote from the editor of "British Artists" "The artist seems to have a unique talent that I envy, to paint people is not easy to paint people that ooze feelings is nigh on impossible and yet these people ooze life" John Barrowman in J P's Studio We had an interesting guest in the studio when John Barrowman popped in for a visit and to look at some of the new art in the studio to see the art as it is produced. As always delighted to meet an art lover and John Barrowman certainly likes J P's work www.jpmclaughlin.co.uk www.phoenix-art.net
