His recent solo exhibitions have included the Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh in 2005 and the Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh in 2002.

His work has been included in many group exhibitions, from Contemporary Abstraction at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh and Offshore (Neue Malerei aus England) at the Künstlerwerkstatt, Munich in the early 1980s, to more recently the John Moores 23 in Liverpool, the Absolut Open at Inverleith House in Edinburgh, and Beyond Appearances at the City of Edinburgh Art Centre.
