About

Thank you for looking at my website. I grew up in Pitlochry and returned to live here a few years ago. Prior to moving back here I lived in Argentina and before that Oban and the Hebrides. Like everyone I am influenced by my surroundings – here by the landscapes of Highland Perthshire.  I particularly love trees and woods, and the way the light changes everything.

Painting is a process, never an end result – that is what makes it so interesting! My work has moved between observational figurative painting and abstraction – and back again.

I studied at Leith School of Art and Cyprus College of Art and am a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art (Drawing and Painting) and University College Dublin (Philosophy and English). My teaching experience includes several years as an Open College of the Arts tutor; work in schools; and workshops in different aspects of painting and drawing at Pitlochry Festival Theatre.

I also work on web design for individuals and small businesses, please contact me for details.

A selection of my paintings, prints and cards are available at Melt Gallery, Pitlochry.
