Hello and Welcome!

I'm a Scottish artist making contemporary paintings of landscapes and nature, often featuring children or families in the great outdoors. I am interested in how people connect and engage with nature in the modern world, especially children like my own who are growing up in the city. I am inspired by the colours and forms of the natural world and seek to capture fleeting moments of life in my paintings and mixed media drawings.
