This is my first post in the forum and I’d like to raise awareness of my dad’s maritime artwork.
My dad, Michael Hepburn is a pastel artist from Greenock with a keen interest in maritime work. Greenock, along the Clyde Coast in Scotland, has a strong history and tradition of shipbuilding, and so maritime became his favourite subject matter.
To provide a little background, his work has been exhibited at The Royal Scottish Academy, The Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine arts, The Pastel Society in London and a variety of other galleries throughout the UK. His work resides in a number of private collections; namely those of the McLean Museum, the late Sir Arnold Clark, Clydeport, Clyde Maritime Trust, Norman Godman, Cory Tugs, Clyde Shipping Tugs and Karlsen Shipping.
A number of his works have been made into prints and cards, and you can view the maritime scenes in this section of the website: hepburnfineart.co.uk/maritime/
If you have any questions just let me know.
