Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting!
I have been a professional artist since the late 90s, working primarily in water based paint, mixed media and printmaking. I have had a long held fascination with the human condition for as long as I can remember, and this has led me along many different paths of exploration, including (but not limited to) portraiture, working with scientists and studying philosophy.
I live by the beach in Fife and my recent work has stemmed from walks by the sea at sunrise and sunset.
With over twenty years experience in teaching in various forms, I have taught children and adults from beginner to professional level. I have also mentored artists who want to take their practice to the next stage but are not sure how to proceed.
Whilst my own practice is figurative, I love to teach across genres such as landscape, the natural world and abstraction.
My work and I continue to develop along varying themes of transformation – I am now mainly on Instagram so come over and see me there!
