I am a Scottish artist based in Oxford. I studied at The Glasgow School of Art in the department of Drawing and Painting
(B.A Hons First Class) 1892-1986, (Post-Graduate Diploma (Highly Commended) Drawing and Painting from 1986-1987 and at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1987). I was then awarded a British Council scholarship to study at
The Hungarian academy of Fine Art in Budapest, Hungary from 1987-1989. I returned to Glasgow and was a Lecturer at
The Glasgow School of Art on the B.A Fine Art Hons Degree Course (Dept. of Drawing and Painting) from 1989-1995.
I obtained a PGCE and Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Educational Practice (Artist/Teacher Scheme) from Oxford Brooks University and I have taught in a variety of Art Centre's/Schools and Art Schools in Glasgow, Bangkok and Oxford.
I started teaching part-time in the Art Department at St Edward’s School in 2008-present. I have exhibited my work widely, most notably in Glasgow, Hungary, Oxford, London and Edinburgh and my work is held in many private collections.
My work is concerned with the contextual response to words, memory, relationships and experience. landscape images are created in response to the written word and memories. As a visual image, the work resonates mood, impermanence and continuum. My drawings, prints and paintings are from imagination and memories. They evoke transient snapshots and memories of places visited in Scotland and Iceland. They allow the viewer to create a personal relationship and dialogue with the work and to be transported to a place where emotion and image form the experience. They are murmurings from the past-real from imagined.
