Gordon J Cheape



I am self-taught and started painting at the age of 40 during a one year stay in Switzerland, inspired by love, new surroundings and a long held wish to draw and paint.

Upon my return to Scotland, I followed life-drawing courses, a.o. at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Edinburgh College of Art.
