John Lowrie Morrison OBE
One of Scotland's most loved artists, Jolomo has been painting the west coast since the early 1960s using strong contrasts and strong colours - especially his signature luminescent blue.
Born in , Glasgow, John studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1967 - 72. For 25 years John pursued a career as an art teacher in Argyll, rising to Principal Teacher of Art at Lochgilphead High School and Art Adviser to Strathclyde Region.
Since dedicating himself to painting full time in 1997, John has successfully exhibited his work in solo and mixed exhibitions at numerous galleries in Scotland, England, Hong Kong and the USA. His spectacular career has been captured in film, in the DVD I Know Where I Am Going by Mitchell McGlone and the BBC TV Film, The Man With The Golden Brush and in the books The Colour of Life and A Passion For Colour.
John donates a percentage of his sales to charity and makes significant donations of artwork each year.
ISLAND BLUE GALLERY
Island Blue Gallery is an art gallery and gift shop located at Baliscate, near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. We have a beautiful, light space filled with works by many skillful Scottish artists ranging from the mysterious and tranquil sweeping landscapes of Garry Brander to the mythical and surreal fantastical worlds of Matylda Konecka. A lot of the prints we stock have a distinctly Scottish feel and truly capture the essence of Scotland's landscape and wildlife.
