I am an award winning painter, originally trained and practised as an architect. This background gifted me with a passion for the built environment; the buildings and the spaces in between. I am drawn to elements of structure: stairways, doorways, arches, bridges; points of transition and thresholds. I am interested in the way in which light interacts with the mundane: the transformative effect of sunlight and shade on something very ordinary; essential elements upon which we tend not to focus. I paint the aspects of our urban landscape which underpin the rest -
My work focuses the viewer’s attention on the interplay of light with the structure and often treats other elements of the composition in a more abstract way. My paintings have been described as having a sense of quiet contemplation which draws the viewer in. I explore the changing rhythm of light and shade, on the seemingly ordinary; revealing the everyday in a new light.
I maintain a busy schedule of exhibiting work across the UK and my work is represented in both public and private art collections.
I am an elected Professional Member of both the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) and Visual Arts Scotland (VAS).
