After spending his early childhood in a small fishing village in Scotland, Neil and his family moved south.
At the earliest opportunity he attended Farnham School of Art in Surrey and left inspired and determined to pursue a career in painting. There followed a lengthy stay in Florence, painting and absorbing the Art of the Renaissance.

During his teaching period at Guilford School of Art and West Surrey College of Art, Neil became fascinated with the nature of the landscape of Penwith and now paints full-time, working from his studio on the north coast at Hellesveor, with dramatic uninterrupted views of the Atlantic coastline.

He works by observing the landscape and absorbing the feelings and emotions that it creates in him. Neil also makes sketches on the spot, which act as a catalyst to his work when he is back in his studio. His paintings recall Turner with their energy, directness and immediacy. Light, atmosphere and the power of the weather are all pervading. The landscape in his paintings at times feels ancient, weatherworn and even battle scarred. His apparent joy of manipulating paint in his landscapes re-affirms his search for a tenuous balance between personal imagery and a surface that celebrates painting.
