  • Biography
Working from my studio in one of Paisley's historic thread mills and using a variety of different materials, including acrylic, watercolour, inks and pastel, I make paintings which speak of my experience in and connection to the landscape. I am interested in the interaction between humans and the natural world. How we, both from an individual and a wider societal perspective, seek to create some kind of stability, assurance or control, within the seemingly unpredictable or unknown forces of nature.
