Thank you for your patience while I took a break :)

About Me

The inspiration for my work comes from my beautiful surroundings.  The Highlands has been my primary source of motivation since moving to the Black Isle in 2006.  The old fishing villages, landscapes and coast provide an endless source of fascination, and I have found much to inspire me within the area renowned for its wild beauty.

I am originally from rural Paddock Wood in Kent, but I have Scottish roots on my Mother‘s side and felt the pull of Scotland too much to resist. My passion for art and crafts stems from a young age, but it wasn’t until moving to Scotland that I became an active artist. The outdoor life of Scotland has taught me how light, and colours are so important in a painting which I now bring to my art with my characteristic use of bold colours and energy to produce instantly recognisable work.  I try to capture the ambience and character of the landscape with enhanced colours to accentuate the mood and natural splendour of my theme.

I have exhibited my work in many galleries across the Highlands of Scotland and I regularly accept commissions as I love to create beautiful paintings to my client's specifications.  I hope you love my work too and thank you for looking.
