I began painting at the age of 9, and soon found myself comfortable creating flights of the imagination in acrylics on paper. My first commercial ventures in art were producing hand painted t-shirts sold to school friends, and later on even branching out to customising motorcycle paintwork and commercial murals. Completing a Foundation Art course but failing to gain entry to University, I found my way into a career in the Offshore industry. 15 years later, and I found myself no longer part of a shrinking industry, and turned misfortune into opportunity.
My body of work is increasing and I’ve held several successful exhibitions.
A life spent growing up around the coast of east and west Scotland and the east coast of England has tied my soul to the beauty and changing colour that can only be found where the Sea meets the Land. In my work, I bring those moments to others, to share the dance of colour and space.
