A love of art since childhood led me on to take it up more seriously once my children grew up. In 1994 I graduated as a mature student with a B.A. honours from Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art, since then I have consistently exhibited in galleries in the U.K.

My works are to be found in corporate and private collections world wide including Australia, America, Germany and Ireland, one painting being hung in a major bank in Mumbai. Two are also owned by the Mayor of Danville near Los Angeles. I have been lucky enough to have painted in France and Spain and have won several awards for my work.

I have usually painted semi-abstract landscapes in acrylic but I wanted to avoid painting to a formula, and I have recently started to experiment with mixed media, collage and more textural effects. Although most of my paintings are rooted in reality, surrounded as I am, by the beautiful Angus countryside, I do enjoy putting my own personal spin on what I see, and interpreting in a more imaginative way. I am particularly excited by the abstract harmonies that I sense in my subjects and in colour harmony and composition.
