As a child I loved to draw family, friends and animals close to me. I also liked making things out of paper and fabric.

 

I went to art school and learned to draw from the figure and explored different approaches and styles of painting.

 

 

After art school I moved away from figurative painting towards more abstract images that explored the play between movement and stillness, and darkness and light.

When my children were young for some years I worked as a portrait painter. 

​My daughter and son often became the subject matter for my work.

Moving from London back to Scotland in 1995 I started to paint seascapes inspired by holidays on the west coast of Scotland.

 Living and working in Glasgow I was inspired to paint streets and parks I knew well.

I focused again on abstract themes for an exhibition in 2014

After this I took a break from making art for about 6 years. 

In 2020 I started working on paper using watercolours and acrylics paint and making the painted collages featured on this website.
