Statement

Flowers have been a central subject to my work since 2003, depicting them in different ways and contexts through painting, drawing, mixed media and installation . Over the years my ambitions for them have grown from straight portaiture to more complex compositions and ideas.

The ‘Votive Offerings’ project is an ongoing series of portrayals of wild flower posies I am making and leaving around Scotland. In this the work becomes as much about the act of making and leaving the posies in different environments, and the motif of the posey as gift, as it is a celebration of the form of the flowers and plants portrayed.

I work from my unusual studio on Platform 2, Ladybank Railway Station in Fife. Ladybank Station is a still functioning station on the line from Edinburgh to Dundee. Built c.1850 my studio rooms used to be the old station restaurant which I renovated to create the studio in 2009.
