Born in 1985, Lee Craigmile grew up in the seaside town of Largs, Scotland, where he first developed his interest in the Scottish landscape and his passion for painting. In 2005, Craigmile enrolled into the continuing education program at The Glasgow School of Art, where he studied drawing and painting for several years. In 2012 he enrolled with The Florence Academy of Art, graduating in 2015, before moving back to Glasgow where he has set up his studio.
Craigmile’s aim as an artist is to create works of art that express the beauty of the world as faithfully as possible while at the same time conveying the feeling and atmosphere of his subject, whether it be a landscape, portrait or a still-life. He finds inspiration through artists such as Eugene Carriere, John S. Sargent, J.M.W. Turner, Vincent Van Gogh, Pissarro, and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. Lee hopes that he may inspire others—just as he himself was inspired as a youth—to realise the truth that one can achieve great works of art through the study of traditional techniques and methods of painting and by looking to the great artists of the past.
If you like the style and have a particular subject in mind then it may be possible to commission a piece from the particular artist.
The Atelier Gallery has managed many commissions for our clients and believes it is a unique and personal way of purchasing art. We are here to simplify a process that allows you to become fully engaged, as appropriate, with the design and development of a bespoke piece of artwork.
