Alastair David Houston was born in 1965 and brought up on the west coast of Scotland. Coming from an enthusiastic sailing family, he spent his early years on the waters, leading to a move to the professional sailor’s world of Palma, Mallorca, in the late 1980s.
Working on yachts was second nature, and with a chance meeting with art enthusiasts, proposing the questions, ‘can you paint my boat?’ came the answer, ‘yes and I can also paint a picture of it!’.
Interested in art from a young age, Alastair has always loved drawing and painting. This was a first commission and so began his career as an artist.
