Wylie, a native of Glasgow, is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art where he
studied Drawing and Painting under such prominent figures as Willie Armour,
Geoff Squires, Sinclair Thomson, and Duncan Shanks. The grounding he received
in composition and in colour in the true Glasgow tradition has remained a
mainstay of his work.
Wylie exhibits continually in a variety of private galleries
across Scotland, with work also widely available in cards and in print. He is a
member of Paisley Art Institute and contributes regularly to the annual
exhibition, one of the largest of its kind outside Glasgow or Edinburgh, where
he has been awarded prizes on three occasions.
