Eddie Rainey - 1RHF

Sorry to inform everyone that Eddie Rainey died yesterday (Wednesday 7th May 2014)

Edward Rainey (born 8 July 1961) was a Scottish tetraplegic painter.

Eddie was born in Glasgow. At sixteen he left school and after a short time as a trainee butcher he joined the Royal Highland Fusiliers. on his Stag night in Spain in 1984
when Edward was 23 he had a diving accident and was left paralysed from the neck down. After this accident he took stock of his life, rediscovered his faith in God and
decided to try his first love, painting, using a brush held in his mouth. Eddie met and presented the Princess Royal with one of his paintings and met Princess Diana who
attended one of his exhibitions. Eddie's ambition was to graduate from the Glasgow School of Art and to become a full member of the Association of Mouth and Foot
Painting Artists of the World. His influences include Vincent van Gogh and Salvador Dalí. He has painted for Princess Anne and Paul McCartney.

Our sympathy go out to his tight knit family.

Funeral Details:

Wednesday 14th May at 1000hrs, St Convals, 21 Hapland Rd, Pollok, Glasgow, G43 5NT
