I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2006, with a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Painting. I have a studio in Dalry, regularly exhibiting work in various Edinburgh galleries. One of my paintings is on permanent display at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, as well as several in private collections.
Inspired by seascapes, spacescapes and colour combinations and patterns found in nature, I create dreamlike paintings built up of distorted layers of colours and imagery. Using an explosive mixture of oil paint, varnish and spray paints I embrace the reactions that occur with this combination of different substances and the natural beauty that is created when ‘accidental’ paint splashes happen.
I am currently taking commissions, so please get in touch if you are interested.
