Ross McAuley

I was born and raised in Toronto and worked in television postproduction before moving to Glasgow in 2013 to pursue a career in fine arts. I make pictures as a way to engage with the world around me and to present how I see it.

People are especially fascinating to me. The way they look, the way they are and the ways they make me feel are the greatest influences on my life and work. My painting is a self-portrait in a fabulous pair of pyjamas that I am very fond of.
