Statement

I use land and sea as inspiration for my drawings and prints, with emphasis on the sky which, is fundamental in creating the 'mood' within my work.
More recently, I have been developing my own approach to monoprinting, incorporating some relief printing – culminating in exhibiting with ‘The Masters One-off Monoprint’ 2017 and The National Original Print Exhibition 2019, with The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers Society, Bankside Gallery, London.
Like many artists, my interests are diverse but, my work is primarily sea and landscapes of the Scottish coast.
