I regard myself as a multi-media artist. I paint in oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolour. My drawings are mainly pen, pencil or charcoal. I am primarily self-taught after leaving school with a Scottish Higher Level in Art. Life took over from art during my early adult years of work, home and children. However, I came back to art a few years ago when I decided that I would like to progress from being an amateur painter through self-development to become a semi-professional artist.
My inspiration mainly comes from life although I do work from imagination on occasions. My favourite subjects include landscape, still life composition, portraiture, drawing from life and some contemporary work. My specialist area of expertise is in landscapes, particularly of the local area in Suffolk where I currently live and Scotland where I was born and raised. I have recently been working on a series of commissions for small pet portraits in both oils and acrylics.
