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 beauty and mystery in 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 and engaging with the world, exploring unfamiliar places and past lives, or other ways of living. 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.
