Lachlan Goudie was born in 1976 in Glasgow into an artistic family and as a young boy regularly featured in the paintings of his father. He studied Literature at Cambridge University from 1996 and on his graduation he was awarded the ‘Levy-Plumb’ Scholarship in the Visual Arts prize. He left Scotland and his roots and embarked on a career as a painter, firstly completing a three-month trip to India funded by his scholarship, this trip led to his first exhibition in Cambridge. Lachlan set up a studio in London and his next exhibition was ‘Paris: A Room with a View’, a body of work that was inspired during a stay in a roof-top room in Paris. Lachlan has continued to work in this way, building a body of work that results in exciting exhibitions. His exhibitions have been commercially successful and critically acclaimed for example ‘A True Wilderness at Heart’ a nostalgic exhibition held in New York, that was inspired by the photographs of E.A. Hegg who documented the Klondike Gold rush.
