Born 1961. Graduated Glasgow School of Art in 1983 with a degree in Fine Art. Principal Teacher of Art at St Aloysius College Glasgow before leaving to pursue a full-time career in art. Particularly well-known for his portraits, particularly Nicola Sturgeon, Billy Connolly among many others from all walks of life in Scotland. Although the paintings are almost photographic in their realism, they are nevertheless painterly and Burns is noted for his modern-day translation of traditional themes.
