For me painting is all about exploring the elemental oneness of light and colour that manifests the shapes and forms that surround us.
I would describe my painting as organic impressionistic with degrees of abstraction.


I'm a contemporary painter living in Fife, Scotland with a studio that overlooks the river Forth.
For my tenth birthday I received a box of watercolours and I've been painting ever since. These days my work is mostly done in oils on linen but I also use acrylics and watercolours for studies.
Mainly working with hog hair brushes and palette knifes, I work in an intuitive way and react to what happens during the making of a painting. The atmosphere of my paintings comes through working, and often by chance. This can be frustrating but I want to be surprised; I would get bored if I followed a set procedure.
