I am a Scottish artist, now living and working in Northeast Florida, USA. Having drawn and painted from an early age, my three sisters bought my first easel and set of Watercolor paints. I continued to paint, studying History of Art at Girvan Academy, Scotland under the inspiring eyes of great teachers. I continued that tradition encouraging art in the schools where I taught and became headteacher. As I moved into academic life in universities and then into business, art became the hobby which provided my relaxation especially in my sixth decade. I work mainly in Watercolor but produce some acrylic and oil canvases. I see artistic opportunities in the landscapes and everyday objects which surround me both in my Scottish roots and in the laid back Florida lifestyle I enjoy with my husband, Stephen and my spoiled Weimaraner, Velvet. Both settings bring very different colors and moods out of my palette.
