Painter and teacher, born at Yoker, Glasgow, who studied at the School of Art there, 1949–53. Having worked for two years as a theatre decorator, Crozier from the mid-1950s travelled widely in Europe. He then taught at Bath Academy of Art, the Central School of Arts and Crafts and Winchester School of Art. He retired as head of fine art there in 1987 to devote all his time to painting. From 1957 Crozier had a series of solo exhibitions at Drian Galleries, abstracts with landscape references. He was influenced at this time by American Abstract Expressionism. His later work employed more obvious landscape references, but vibrant colour and vitality continued to be key elements. Crozier exhibited at Arthur Tooth and Sons, Compass Gallery in Glasgow, Serpentine Gallery, Scottish Gallery and abroad.
