Livingstone was born and brought up on Tyneside. He studied at Wimbledon and Chelsea Colleges of Art from 1976 to 1981 and returned to live in Durham in 1990.

His work examines the impact of agricultural, industrial and military usage upon land forms and habitats. He uses media made from found, re-cycled and natural materials and often works closely with museum collections.

“Moths and Moons”, a body of work commissioned in 2006 by the British Library as a contemporary response to the Lindisfarne Gospels, toured museums, galleries and historic sites throughout the North of England and “Dust and Shadows – sixty four extinctions”, made in association with Oxford University Museum and the Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough, featured as part of the Gallery of Wonder at the Great North Museum and was shown last year at the Museum of Art and Design in New York.

He is currently preparing an exhibition of drawings for Bede’s World museum and monastic site in Jarrow to mark the return of the Lindisfarne Gospels to the North East.
