Statement

I mainly work in acrylics and I like to build up my images using glazes. I like to use poetry and literature as inspiration for my work, such as Kavanagh, Shakespeare, Rumi, Calvino and Rilke.
Recently I have had the opportunity to work with Donal Power, Irish Wildlife Photographer of the Year, on a series of Wildlife paintings, which are ongoing and which have greatly increased my interest in the subject.
Living in rural Perthshire is also a constant source of inspiration as I observe the nature, changing light and seasons in this beautiful part of Scotland.
