In my painting I am drawn to the sea and coast; the power of the sea; its constant motion, its changing colours and surfaces, its significance to human history with the countless journeys taken across it. For me it is an integral aspect of Scottish landscape and holds so much of Scotland’s history both in livelihoods and emigration.
Collages

Collages

My collages or mixed media works depict a fusion of sea, maps and text,, 3 components I find very inspiring.
They are all on paper. I price them individually so please get in touch if you see something you like.
Pentland Days

Pentland Days

During lockdown I decided to do a drawing project about the local area. I wanted to look at the Pentland Hills, where I have lived for 23 years, and see it afresh. So on my daily walk I found a scene or a vista or a detail that I wanted to do a drawing of. These are the results.
