About the Artist

Originally from the North-east of Scotland, I travelled and worked abroad for over twenty years before returning to the UK.  

I have based myself in Kent for the past thirty-five years.


My art is based on my interests in Archeaology, Architecture, landscapes and the more domestic objects of everyday use - vessels and containers.

In 2000, I was invited artist at the Royal Academy in Edinburgh by the Scottish Society of Artists (SSA).  The artwork I hung was inspired by the archeaology of the prehistoric site of Cissbury in Southern England.  It consisted of seventy-two encaustic panels measuring a total of 21 ft wide by 12 ft high.


Currently my work is mainly in acrylic with charcoal on canvas, board or paper.  I find the acrylic medium is well suited to my style, where drawing on the surface with charcoal is a feature of my paintings.


I am a member of the East Kent Art Society (EKAS).
