About

cropAs an artist my interest is in a personal response to the immediacy of landscape, also the environment, culture and history of the landscape I paint.

I often work in collaboration with artists, poets or musicians and I find this an inspiring part of the creative process, involving the exchange of ideas and observations, resulting in multi-layered presentations or exhibitions which enrich depth of response for the artists involved and the viewer.

My work has shown in galleries around the UK (more detail below) including public galleries – Royal Scottish Academy and City Art Centre In Edinburgh, commercial galleries – Open Eye, Sutton and Gallery Ten in Edinburgh, exhibitions around the UK and abroad, in Berlin and Portugal.

I also worked for many years in the field of arts and health as Curator for the NHS in Scotland and the West Midlands, most recently as Lead Artist/Curator for the Leverndale Hospital, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
