I am a North Berwick-based artist who loves being out of doors, trying to capture the colour, mood and magic of the moment – whether it’s the cityscapes of Edinburgh and Glasgow, the fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife or the moors and mountains of the Cairngorms or the west coast of Scotland. The high pastures and rugged peaks of the Alps in summer and winter offer a further rich source of material and more recently the sun-drenched coastline and towns of northern Majorca.
Being in the outdoors and walking the mountains, forests and coastlines, watching the changing seasons – these are some of the fundamentals that shape my work as an artist. I paint as I see it and sometimes that’s a recognisable image and sometimes it’s more abstract – it depends on the subject, mood, season and whim. But it’s great fun!
