Graeme is a Scottish-born, Canadian citizen who lives in Victoria, BC, Canada. A trained urban-planner and transportation specialist, he has been drawing and painting since returning from a trip to the U.K. in 1983.
Graeme studied drafting in high school, and he took evening classes at the Victoria College of Art for two years before heading to the University of Toronto and a year of Fine Arts. Through the vagaries of the lottery system in Fine Arts for second year, he moved into urban planning. While VCA provided a background in Fine Arts basics and created the foundation for a year in classic art training, it was time at UoT that focused upon technical drawing, under-drawings and watercolour.
