  • Biography
My work is mostly abstract based on my environment. For many years I painted gardens, based on my own garden and that of Kellie Castle in Fife. At present, I am working on capturing the feeling of being on Elie Bay, also in Fife, where I spend lots of time walking my dog. The Bay changes character dramatically from summer to winter. This change in energy is the subject I am trying to capture on paper and canvas.
