I studied interior and environmental design at Duncan of Jordanstone, graduated in 2000
and worked as a designer within the commercial and leisure sector until 5 years ago.
I think it’s fair to say my background in design does manifest itself in some aspects of my
painting and sketching. I quite often get into tight details in my sketchbook but I try to
translate that into a looseness and escape with marks of paint and grabbing elements of
perspective and altering that within layers to create the final piece.
