I am a professional artist and a modern contemporary Scottish landscape and seascape painter. I live and work in my home studio in Gorebridge, Midlothian. I have been painting since I can remember and I absolutely love it!
I paint in oils and I am really fascinated by natural shades, contrasts, textures etc.
In my Scottish paintings, I try to capture my own mood and mix this with the mood nature presents for me to paint.
Every painting is unique for me because I put my soul and passion into every work, and I never know where my imagination and nature’s inspiration will take me next…
