The following is from William Dobbie’s website at https://www.williamdobbieart.com
“William Dobbie was born in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city; world famous for its shipbuilding. Growing up here on the banks of the River Clyde, where the Queen Mary and the most famous tall ship of all, the Cutty Shark were built, he found himself in love with and inspired by a rich maritime heritage.
His artistic abilities were recognised at an early stage, winning him gold and silver medals for art while still at school. Following his graduation from the Glasgow School of Art, he began to build an impressive reputation at home and internationally. His original work can be seen in the board rooms of major brewing companies, national charities and advertising agencies as well as in the homes of lovers of fine paintings.”
