About the Artist
I live and work in Scotland – creating hand rendered images on glass by combining glass with precious metals. These materials have their own inherent beauty in the way they respond to light.
I depict places I find meaningful, moving and atmospheric – their stories and their effect on emotions and imagination. These are usually remote, wild, northern landscapes I have visited including Iceland, Norway, Finnish Lapland and – in particular – my chosen home of Scotland, with its ever-changing light, weather, moods and its enigmatic material culture.
My chosen media also allows me to achieve a high level of detail for observational studies of flora, fauna and finds. I do not use printing or decals to create work. The concentration required for detailed studies is significant as I truly ‘see’ through the drawing process and because the minute elements of our natural world are easily overlooked and just as important as our wider environment.
