"This other old classic is owned by the couple who live next door to me in Northumberland. It’s a Norton 19s Watsonian Avon sidecar if any motor bike enthusiast is interested. When John and Bobbie my Gadgie and Gal, came to model for me I said to John after he donned the old helmet and goggles that he resembled Steve McQueen in the movie The Great Escape, and so the title was born."
"I was born in 1960 into the small mining community of Springside a few miles outside the town of Kilmarnock on the west coast of Scotland. Life within the small Scottish village was very traditional and although I grew up in the sixties era it felt more like the forties. My formative years were spent in the company of old men dressed in dark suits smoking woodbines partnered with large missile-shaped women decked out in head scarves and pinnies. My father worked for British Rail and I got great pleasure from simply sitting in the atmospheric steam filled stations which even today I find are the most romantic, nostalgic places to be. Many of my most romantic paintings are set within that very atmosphere. I guess I am just a big old fashioned nostalgic romantic at heart!"
