Having worked in the financial services sector for many years and relocating from Glasgow to Edinburgh I left my job to commence full time study and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in Painting and Drawing in 2010.

My inspiration and passion is Scotland and I love to investigate both urban and rural aspects of the land.

I work principally in acrylic and in varying size from thumbnail to 2.5M squared. I like to use varying paint applications, often placing fluid passages next to more rigid or controlled areas. This juxtaposition is attempted to express the contentions, conflicts and complexities we all face in life.
