As far back as I recall I have always made art.
Much of the inspiration for my paintings comes from the stunning natural Scottish landscape. I love the quality of dappled light in the forests, the ever changing vista; a swift turn on the path leading to glens, mountains and seascape. I am intrigued by an implied human presence within my subject matter, the juxtaposition of the subjects and use of colour create a narrative, suggesting emotions, time and place without direct statement.
In my paintings I aim to capture the inner luminosity through use of extended layers of glaze and chiaroscuro, in some work I incorporate a variety of materials with glazing to depict the texture of the subject, whilst in others only glazing.
I was taught by artists such as Ken Mitchell, Pete Beven, Jock McInnes, Norman Kirkham, and Tom Allan amongst others.
