My interest as a painter is in communicating an atmospheric, visceral response to landscape – also researching the environment, history and geology of the landscape I paint. As an artist born in Edinburgh most of my work is in response to Scottish landscape.
I often work in collaboration with poets or musicians, which I find an inspiring and rewarding creative process.
My work has shown in galleries around the UK and abroad including the Royal Scottish Academy, City Art Centre, Open Eye and Sutton Galleries in Edinburgh, the Lighthouse, Brighton, Limetree in Bristol, Gallery One, Berlin and Corte Real in Portugal.
I also worked for many years in the field of public art, most recently as lead artist/curator for the Leverndale Hospital, Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
