  • Biography
I work mainly in pastel. I am continually inspired by the
purity and vividness of colour that the medium provides,
as well as its tactile nature.
I also enjoy working in graphite pencil.

A current passion is still life - I am particularly intrigued by
the subtle effect of muted light in an interior space - but
I am also constantly drawn back to landscape and to
attempting to interpret the ever-changing light on clouds, land and water.
I studied English at Edinburgh University and worked for
twenty years in the library/information profession,
while also raising a family.

About a decade ago I began to attend art classes, including
a continuing education course at Glasgow School of Art
and then a full time drawing course at
Leith School of Art (2012-13).
