"I paint every day, without exception. I become absorbed in my paintings, and I find myself captivated by my next painting at every stroke of my current one."

The great grandson of William Foyle (who founded the famous London bookshop) dropped out of Edinburgh College of Art to pursue a career in painting in London. His oils of close friends and family at his first solo show at Mayfair's Gallery 8 capture the essence of the sitter in thick brushstrokes.
