“Inspiration for my work comes from the exceptional scenery around the Scottish Borders where I live and work, Scotland’s wonderful coastline and the Scottish Highlands.

When painting I draw from memory of place rather than photographs, unless I am working on a commission.

I love working with mixed media, especially acrylic and most recently oil. I enjoy the different textures they create and the challenges that working with mixed media bring.

Ten years ago I began working with slate and wax. The combination is so exhilarating as it creates a wonderful tapestry of colours due to the mixing and heating process. The slate, in its raw organic state, lends itself to the Scottish seascapes and landscapes which I try to recreate.

When an image of a place I have encountered comes to mind I will start to work on it and once the colours and images appear then feelings for that place are conjured up. It’s like looking back through a photo album in my memory.

I hope to evoke good memories for others in my work so they too can see a glimpse of a special place where they have resided or visited.”
