My work is an exploration and expression of the coastal landscape of Scotland. I take inspiration from the detail that occurs through the interaction of the land and sea.

I like to work outside responding directly to the subject using acrylics and watercolours, these studies later go on inform paintings and textiles in my studio.

With the Scottish weather, no two days are the same and the constant shifting light makes painting outdoors an exciting and challenging process.

On starting a painting I have no preconceived idea of the outcome as my desire is to let the subject lead me to my conclusion.
