Iain Faulkner, “Morning Coffee”, 2003, Oil on Canvas
Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1973 where he was raised and educated. As a child Faulkner was encouraged and guided by his father, an electrical engineer, for whom drawing was both job and pastime. Faulkner went on to Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1996 with a BA (Honours) Degree in Fine Art. Faulkner is, however, largely self-taught and from the start of his professional career chose to follow the difficult and demanding path of figurative painting.
