I’ve been drawing and painting since I was very young and vividly remember winning my first drawing competition at school age 10, becoming the proud recipient of a very nice set of drawings pencils! It's become a bit of an addiction for me since then and I can't remember a period in my life when I haven't drawn or painted in one form or another.
I live in the stunning Scottish Borders and if I’m not wandering the countryside with my whippet assistant Kelpy, we can both be found in my home studio in Galashiels.
I find inspiration in both wild and domestic animals (although mainly pointy-nosed sighthounds!) and their odd quirks and funny ways. I paint using acrylics, a vibrant and quick-drying medium and I also produce pen sketches, a medium that allows for quick movement across the page.
I produce pet portraits and original works for exhibition as well as developing an ongoing range of greetings cards and printed products (including prints, gifts and homeware) which I sell in galleries and shops throughout the UK as well as online. I can be found at makers fairs and pop up shops at different times of the year – please look up my page on Facebook for more information.
