I graduated from Glasgow School of Art Mural Design dept. in 1978 with a DA.
After a career teaching Art and Design for 38 years I am now finding the time to further develop my personal approach to drawing and painting. I love working with oil paints as well as soft pastels and acrylic. I enjoy capturing my own photographs for reference, as well as
sketchbook work and Plein air.
I take inspiration from the integration of wildlife and nature with urban environments. I continue to challenge myself in exploring colour, texture and light by studying a variety of subjects; from portraiture to botanicals, landscape and the animal kingdom.
