'Home' is a constant search for me, influenced by my peripatetic childhood shifting from country to country and place to place.

Finally settling in Scotland, the Isles of Mull and Iona for the first time gave rise to roots for me, with their history, geology, landscape, weather and mood all interwoven in one place.

I explore and express this through collages and drawings. Maps, sea charts, family photographs, boats seen in the Sound of Iona or in a friend's back garden awaiting repair or renovation, often feature in my work.
