I was born in 1967 and brought up in rural Southwest Scotland. I am a self taught artist and was greatly influenced by my parents who are both artists.
My work is realistic in style and I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture intricate detail, textural contrasts, light, depth and mood. My inspiration stems from the natural environment, especially nature's beautiful structures. I am surrounded by inspiring scenery from beaches to lochs, woods to glens, moorlands and hillsides.
I am very lucky to pursue art as my career. It has always been a great source of enjoyment and relaxation for me and has become a true passion in life.
I have undertaken a variety of commissioned work including illustrations for books and leaflets. My work has been displayed and sold in various venues within the public and private sectors throughout the UK.
