Growing up in the 1980's in East Kilbride, it's no secret that the town and its surrounding areas grew a fantastic music scene, with world famous bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream, Aztec Camera and Orange Juice to name but a few.
The music of the time has had an everlasting impact on the artist Stephen McDermott, otherwise known as "Chookie".
Painted in timeless black and white, Chookie Mix is an exhibition of paintings using acrylics.
Musical influences include everything from Indie, Pop to Rock 'n' Roll and Soul with a few 'guilty pleasures' thrown in for effect.
Paintings include portraits of Leonard Cohen, Morrissey, the Gallagher Brothers, Paul Weller and Justin Bieber and more...
Chookie (Stephen McDermott) is a local artist who has recently started to paint portraits in acrylics. Formerly a Disney animator who has worked in the USA and Europe, Stephen has credits on many feature animated films including: Mulan, Tarzan, Balto and Lilo and Stitch.
The artwork displayed is for sale. Buyers may choose original paintings or prints to order.

Come and meet the Divas!
A Glasgow institution that needs no introduction, May Miller and husband, music maestro, Robert, have been performing for over twenty years. Together this dynamic duo has performed in Glasgow’s SECC, Pavilion Theatre, the City Halls and all the places in-between. May is fast becoming as well known for her acting as she is for her singing, whilst husband Robert continues to paint famous faces from stage and screen.
Jane has shared the stage with Kelly Lorena, LibertyX and Atomic Kitten to name but a few. She’s an accomplished session worker who has recently toured with River City’s Garry Lamont.
These Divas are brought together by the outrageous antics of Ms Cheri Treiffel Scotland’s Top Drag Queen.
