Artist Biography:

I'm a self-taught artist working predominantly with acrylics on canvas - I just love the sense of immediacy and vibrant colours these produce.

I take inspiration from the sweeping landscapes of the Scottish Borders, but aim to draw the viewer's attention down from the general to the particular, as if peeling back public layers to reveal a specific, private moment in time like a kingfisher's dive, or a cow's inquisitive lick. The backgrounds of my paintings are generally fairly neutral and without distraction in order to focus on the smaller expressions of beauty inherent in our everyday lives.

For me, painting lets out the magic that's hidden all around us.

Artist News/Exhibitions:

I have had three exciting exhibitions in the Scottish Borders so far this year, and now look forward to catching my breath!
