David is chair of the trustees of the Society and has painted since his first sale at the age of twelve. He was trained in oils whilst still at school, and spent some time studying at the Laird School of Art in Birkenhead.
David has exhibited in Birkenhead, Forres, Maldon in Essex, and in many locations across Badenoch and Strathspey over the last thirty years. For six years around the turn of the century he painted all of the pictures used in the BBC TV Series 'Monarch of the Glen' as those of 'Molly MacDonald' played by Susan Hampshire.
To this day, he can still be found on the BBC website at :
He currently works from a studio gallery in his home where visitors will be welcome once the current covid-19 crisis is over.
