David Lindsay (b. 1963)

Born in Leeds, but brought up in Portobello, Edinburgh, he trained as an architectural stone carver with Ian Ketchin at Wallyford, East Lothian, from 1983 to 1987, during which time the main commission was the restoration of the exterior of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh. In 1990, he set up his own company, David Lindsay Stone Carvers, which now trades under the name Stoneworks. Major commissions outside Edinburgh include the Mercat Cross at Coupar Angus, Perth and Kinross (2000), and the series of twelve contemporary gargoyles for Paisley Abbey (1993).
