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 Scottish Borders, a beautiful, atmospheric part of the country, steeped in myth and legend. 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 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, which I sell in galleries and shops throughout Scotland 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.
