Lachlan Goudie was born in Glasgow, the son of the artist Alexander Goudie, a prominent portraitist whose subjects included HM Queen Elizabeth II. Lachlan was born and grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, before reading English at Christ’s College, Cambridge and then Fine Art at Camberwell College of Art in London, also studying under his father. At Christ's, Lachlan was awarded the Levy-Plumb Scholarship which entailed a year's painting residency at the college.
Goudie's range as an artist encompasses portraits, landscapes and still lifes, with a particular focus on recording the industrial landscape of Britain. In addition to painting, Goudie has written and presented several BBC documentaries, including the popular The Story of Scottish Art, Stanley Spencer: The Colours of the Clyde, Awesome Beauty: The Art of Industrial Britain and Painting the Holy Land among others. He has served as a judge on several BBC painting competitions and also published his own book, The Story of Scottish Art.
Goudie has exhibited in Britain and internationally, most recently with the Elizabeth Harris gallery, New York, and with a solo show at the Scottish Gallery in November 2020 titled Once Upon a Time.
