Ian Armstrong

Ian Armstrong joined the Green Howards regiment of the British Army at the age of 23, serving in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Kosovo and Afghanistan. Having spent 22 years in the army, he went on to a variety of different jobs, eventually falling into painting by accident when a friend brought him a canvas. “Like most veterans, I find painting relaxes me. I have the sound of rain hitting a tin roof playing on loop and I just get lost in the picture I’m creating”
