Born & brought up in rural Perthshire.
Attended Edinburgh College of Art, graduating
in 1977. Was a textbook illustrator for 11
years and still bear the scars. I have lived
in Edinburgh since leaving College.
My paintings at the moment are all on the theme
of the garden
& landscape around the farm where I was
brought up. This is the first time they have
had public exposure.
I think you can tell from my work that I have
a bit of an obsession with gardening, growing
things and the seasons. Although my pictures
are naturalistic there is a touch of the abstract
about them. They are bigger than you might
think, mostly about 40 by 50 cm image size,
with a white mount & plain wood frame.
All my work is in watercolour.
