Surgeon / Painter / Artist

My name is Alastair Faulkner and I’m an artist and photographer based in Inverness at the heart of the glorious Scottish Highlands, and Dundee. My day job is a little different as I’m training to be an orthopaedic surgeon.

I graduated with a degree in Medicine from The University of Edinburgh in 2012 and I currently work in NHS Highland. As a largely self-taught artist, my last art qualification was a GCSE in Art and Design at Secondary School obtained in 2004.

After pursuing photography for many years I returned to painting in 2016 and started capturing scenes around Scotland, particularly at the extremes of the day and at night. I also enjoy the challenge of painting portraits and attempting to capture a likeness.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I have producing it! If you’re keen to learn more please drop me a line at or read my blog “Bones and Brushes”.

Upcoming exhibition – Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair – 11th-13th March 2018.
