Bruce grew up in Perth and graduated as a mature student with BA/Hons Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee University, in 2009. His current practice is based in Wasps Studios Meadow Mill, Dundee, where he works as a freelance artist. He teaches life drawing and also facilitates art classes and workshops for the health and wellbeing sector within the community.
From a young age he has always been drawn to the outdoors and has a keen passion for the environment and nature. He continues to climb and walk in Scotland’s varied and wonderful landscapes, gaining inspiration for artworks that aim to evoke the geology, history and ‘genius loci’ of a unique landscape that is continually changing through time’s constant cycle of erosion and rebirth.
