Contemporary Figurative Painting  


Hello and Welcome!

I'm a Scottish artist making contemporary figurative paintings of landscapes, people and nature. I am inspired by the natural word and the everyday- a large part of my working process is hunting for new ideas in the visual world around me e.g. walking in the woods in summer, reflections on a pond in spring, spotting wildlife, watching my children growing up, exploring unfamiliar places or and past lives. In these things I sense the inevitable passing of the time and the spirit of being alive, and it's this I try to capture in my work.
