About the Artist
Sumptuous, expressive oil paintings reflecting the Scottish land, sea and skies.
I trained in the early 1990's in London and went into teaching in 1995. It was a good twenty years before I found my way back to my own art practice. I started with expressive portraits and I am now working on landscapes and seascapes. I like to explore surface texture and colour within the boundaries of representation. I am especially keen on exploring cloudscapes. I use oils which adds a sumptuous luxury to my work. I occasionally make a themed commission such as the Caledonian Buddha which can be found on my web site. My studio, hand built by Mark Worbey, is at the top of the stairs in my tiered garden. I will also be showing work in my house. Whilst the studio or house is not wheelchair friendly, I am happy to bring work down for people to see if necessary.
