George Cockburn is a Scottish artist resident in Edinburgh.

As an artist, he graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in the early ‘70s having studied under Gillies, Philipson, Blackadder and Houston among others and specialised in drawing, painting and print-making. Since completing his post-graduate scholarship year, he has exhibited regularly across the country with much work and commissions in private collections. Being brought up in the countryside of Midlothian where, as a child, he encountered Willie Gillies who encouraged his interest in art (and fishing), his subject matter, whilst wide ranging, has always reflected a sense of place, atmosphere and experiencing locations.
