ARTISTS STATEMENT

I work quickly and with immediacy. That is not to say that pictures are conceived speedily. In most cases my solutions are arrived at after months, if not years of consideration and dry runs. I use watercolour along with ink, resins and foils. I hope for work that intrigues and attracts the viewer

BIOGRAPHY

My approach to paintingis in a spirit of adventureand exploration and I was encouraged in this by my tutors at Edinburgh College of Art. Amoungst whom were Sir Robin Philpson, David Michie and Robert Callander. I taught in Edinburgh schools for twelve years. After a further fourteen years as lecturer in Art & Design at Edinburghs Telford College, I turned to full time painting and some guest lecturing at Edinburgh University, The Embroiderers Guild and The City Art Centre, Edinburgh
