As an abstract expressionist painter, my work allows me a vital, expressive voice where I can communicate my thoughts and feelings.
I am influenced by life in all its complicated, messy, beautiful glory. My work interprets memories of landscape, place and emotions through bold, intuitive painting.
Each painting is an emerging process, I often discover things by accident and then let this dictate the direction of the piece. I always listen to music...this is vital for the energy and mood of the painting. The process is fundamentally the most important part for me.
Born and raised in Scotland and currently based in Perthshire.
