I studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art. I work in oils, mixed media, ceramics and printmaking. My work is predominantly figurative, the figures taken from life, adapted and placed in imagined settings. Influenced by the landscape of my childhood, spent on the east coast of Scotland, the sea, sky, birds, the sun and the moon rising over the water are motifs that often occur in my art.
I work by choosing a theme, memory or idea, often using observational drawings as a starting point. Then I experiment with different media to get the effect or result I want. I love working with bright colour and my ceramic work tends to be decorative and bold in design. Whether it be a canvas, an etching plate, a piece of clay, I see it as a surface on which to inscribe a seductive image.
