Statement

I have always had a love of landscape and seascape in particular, their changing weather, colours and moods and how they affect us and our moods. I paint mostly in oils on canvas, sometimes board. Another significant aspect is fused glass work. I am particularly drawn to dichroic glass because of its ability to transmit one colour and reflect another. I use dichroic accents in many items. All pieces are kiln formed and some slumped into moulds, some also sandblasted.

Biography

My artwork practice comes after early retirement in 2012 from a long legal career. I am an Ordinary Member of the Society of Scottish Artists, an Associate Member of the Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society and a Network Member of Allendale Forge Studios. My painting and glass work has appeared in a number of open and selected exhibitions so far. In 2014 these include Allendale Forge Studios Winter Exhibition, Dumfries and Galloway Fine Art Society ‘On the Road’ Exhibition in Castle Douglas Art Gallery, the Harbour Cottage Open Exhibition in Kirkcudbright, Stranraer Museum and the Dumfries and Galloway Fine Art Society Summer Exhibition in Dumfries. My debut solo exhibition took place in the Fleet Gallery Gatehouse of Fleet in September 2014, where I have been invited to return in 2015. I will also be taking part in the Kirkcudbright Art and Craft Trail in July/August 2015.
