Michael McVeigh was born in Dundee and studied drawing and painting at the city’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. He sells his prints on Saturdays on Rose Street in Edinburgh, behind Marks and Spencers.

His work is inspired by everyday life in Scotland, whose atmosphere he tries to capture in still-lives while expressing his own perception. He often depicts fantastic creatures, and claims the inspiration came from growing up near a farm and working on a zoo. McVeigh compares the process of painting to writing a novel, complete with characters, setting and lucid description, and his work often has a narrative quality to it.
