George Cockburn is a Scottish artist resident in Edinburgh.

He graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in the early ‘70s where he studied under Gillies, Philipson, Blackadder and Houston among others and specialised in drawing, painting and print-making. Since completing his post-graduate scholarship year and whilst pursuing a significant career in education, he has exhibited regularly across the country with much work and commissions in private collections.

Being brought up in the countryside of southern 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.
