  • Biography
Since graduating I have been committed to painting and print-making, and I am concerned with recording the tissue layers in landscape and the spirit of place. As part of my continuing professional development: I attend Studio Practice at WASPS studios in Dalry. I have a studio at the Arthur Conan Doyle Centre and have been a member of Edinburgh Printmakers' Workshop and was on the exhibitions committee 1992-4. I taught art at St George's School for over 20 years and completed my career at ESMS. My former career, included, programming education and events at the FruitMarket Gallery, Edinburgh 92 - 97. This involved working with artists and many other agencies to make contemporary art accessible to a diverse audience. I led a ground-breaking interpretation project, produced videos about artists and ran workshops and forums about contemporary art practice. I was on the executive committee for the National Association for Gallery Education 92-97.

I worked for Scottish Television as an arts researcher and producer and prior to this taught for Adult and Continuing Education at University of Edinburgh and for schools in East Lothian and Bucks County Council.

I continue my teaching by being on the freelance team for National Galleries of Scotland and I also run independent art workshops for Sarah Knox Art School and Off the Rails Arthouse, Fife.

My work is represented by Doubtfire Gallery, Velvet Easel Gallery and Strathearn Gallery as well as exhibiting widely in group shows and responding to commissions.
