Lindsay Logan Art​

John Houston

Expecting to attend Art college to start my career in Graphic Design, my life changed unexpectedly due to a motorbike accident. After recuperating in hospital, I then joined the Motor Trade. I continued to paint in my spare time, which became less often, as work and family commitments took priority.

Over the years the injuries I sustained from the accident began to take their toll, and in 2013 I underwent corrective surgery. During my recuperation at home, I was able to dedicate time to my painting. I was reunited with art and I have since been able to spend more time on my passion. My recent work is for sale in Gallery.

I hope you enjoy them.

​Robert Houston

Most of my family originated from this region of Scotland​, and it was my Grandmothers cousin Robert Houston (1891-1942), and his son John Houston (1913-1985) that gave me my early inspirations. 


At that time my other main interest was motorsport, particularly motorcycle racing and Formula One. Therefore most of my early paintings revolved around these sports.

I was born in 1959, and in my early years lived with my parents, sister and grandmother in Kilbirnie and Beith, on the south-west coast of Scotland.

In 1971, I moved with my family to Lisburn in Northern Ireland, where I attended Wallace High School. The only two subjects which interested me were art and sports. Coincidentally both of these subjects were taken by the same teacher, Bill Lowry. Bill was also a stalwart of Lisnagarvey Hockey Club, and he persuaded me to join. My teenage years were therefore spent painting to A-level and playing hockey to senior level.
