Originally from Yorkshire I have lived in the Scottish Borders for over 40 years. A hill-walker in my younger days, nature and a love of the great outdoors has long been a passion of mine and that closeness with the landscape of the Borders, West Highlands and the Isle of Skye is the inspiration for my painting.
A self-taught artist, I began painting in 2002 in semi-retirement from my nursing career, since when my work has appeared in several galleries in the Borders including some solo exhibitions. I also enjoy passing on my skills on a one-to-one basis at my studio in my home in Bowden.
Working with the tactile medium of pastel I enjoy exploring the colour palette to add emotional feeling to the visual image. My style is traditional but with leanings to contemporary and I have an urge to take a leap into the realms abstract on occasions!
