I live and work from my home and studio on the banks of the River Earn in Highland Perthshire.
My paintings are my response to the landscape and natural history of this area. I need to immerse myself in a place before I can begin to paint. Drawing is an important element in my practise. It allows me to record as well as respond to a landscape in a direct and immediate way. In the studio ideas become edited and filtered. Ideas dictate how the work is to be executed. I enjoy this more fluid way of working which allows me to work both in 2 and 3 dimensions.
I am a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour, Scottish Society of Artists and Visual Arts Scotland. I exhibit with galleries here in Scotland and throughout the United Kingdom.
