My inspiration is the landscape of the Borders, West Highlands and the Isle of Skye. Working with the tactile medium of pastel, and recently with alcohol ink on ceramic tiles.

I had a love of art in my school days and have had a passion for the remote beauty of the Scottish hills and coastline since moving to the Scottish Borders over 40 years ago. Many happy hours upon the Border hills and on Skye have fed my imagination. In retirement from my career as a Nurse, I have been fortunate to rekindle my love of art and to develop my skills to interpret our beautiful landscape.
I have predominantly worked in soft pastel in both traditional and contemporary styles. I continue to do so but I am constantly looking to push the limits of my imagination and my skills. In recent years’ I have discovered the challenge and diversity of alcohol inks and most recently the intensity of detail achievable with the newly available light-fast coloured pencils.
I have been fortunate to have my work represented in galleries throughout the Scottish Borders, with buyers both in the UK and overseas.
