I originally trained as a painter then pursued a career as a chartered architect, became a university tutor at Edinburgh College of Art and Napier University for over a decade teaching architecture, graphic design, product design and drawing. I have won awards in both architecture and painting. I now paint full time from my studio.
I work mostly in acrylic but I like to experiment to keep my work fresh so use different media often on the same painting. Focus is landscape based and I paint the extraordinary in what may look an ordinary view. I use space and order and the conscious decision making process mixed with the fluidity and instinctive movement which comes from using paint.
