I was born in Dumfries and Galloway, but left Scotland in 1991 and spent the next 27 years living in Hungary working as a graphic designer in publishing and advertising whilst painting in my spare time. I returned to Dumfries in 2018 to set up a graphic design studio and to continue creating art.

My art reflects a sensitivity to composition and colour and can be seen as a natural complement to my career as a designer. Freed from the constraints of digital layout, I have transferred my knowledge of colour, balance and form to raw materials.

I work mainly in acrylics on canvas or board and more recently I have been re-visiting styles and techniques from earlier days, influenced by the tranquility and contemplation of the current situation. I take inspiration from the changing light, textures, colours and forms of my surrounding landscape and my paintings reveal my own interpretation and emotional experience.

My paintings evolve through a layered process revealing underlying subtle colours and textures which allows the painting to develop in often unexpected and  contrasting directions.
