I spent my working life as an Art director and Creative Director in graphic design consultancy. I was born in Edinburgh and studied at the College of Art. I am a communicator of ideas and passionate about what I do.
I live in Highland Perthshire in Scotland in a remote place and find the changing light and drama of my surrounding landscape inspiring. I try to capture this in oil and watercolour and believe that what art buyers are interested in is something memorable and individual. My design background influences my choice of subject, I like to find the essence be it the structure of the landscape the clouds, and other iconic elements which provide an anchor for the final composition.
The curious fowl in my garden make me laugh and I also capture these in paint applied to different materials including Oak wood blocks. These have found themselves homes in kitchens all over the country bringing a smile to cooks and all!
