Herald Painter of Scotland

The Herald Painter at the Court is responsible for advising the Lord Lyon and aiding the other artists and calligraphers.

I joined the team of Artists at the Court of the Lord Lyon in 1990 and was appointed as Herald Painter of Scotland by Lord Lyon Blair in January of 2005.

In my capacity as Herald Painter I can produce sketches to be presented to Lyon as initial ideas on the design of new Arms. Once Lyon has signed the Warrant granting Arms, I can also be commissioned to produce artwork suitable for commission flags, silverware, letter headings and bookplates as illustrated on this website.
