In my paintings and prints I try to recreate the atmosphere and sensations I feel when I am out in the landscape or wandering around a city. I will often make sketches and take photos for reference then usually complete my paintings back in my studio.

I primarily use oil on canvas, but also like to work with watercolour and ink. Influences include Schiele, Klimpt, Turner, Picasso and Whistler; as well as some more modern and local artists like Joan Eardley and John Bellany. However, it is the beauty to be found in the cities and the landscapes of Scotland which continue to inspire me most.

My paintings and prints have featured in many prestigious exhibitions, including the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) Open where my entry was used as publicity material for the show; the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts Annual Open, The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Society of Scottish Artists exhibitions (SSA).

The work I have done at Dunfermline Printmakers Workshop Cooperative (FDPW) features in the Etchings Gallery. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to take part in providing screenprinting workshops for the public in conjunction with the Andy Warhol: Pop, Power and Politics exhibition held at the Scottish Parliament throughout October 2013.

My work is held in private collections around the world and is available for sale directly via the Contact page on this website, so please get in touch if you see something you like. Other works can be purchased at Morningside & Marchmont galleries in Edinburgh, Frames Gallery, Perth & Gallery Heinzel, Aberdeen. Work can also be purchased directly from me at Fire Station Creative in Dunfermline.
