Contemporary Painting - Original Art For Sale - Scottish Artist


Hello and Welcome!


I'm a Scottish artist based in Edinburgh, making contemporary paintings of people and nature. I am inspired by the natural world and everyday experience - a large part of my working process is hunting for new ideas in the visual world around me, especially when spending time with family and friends, or birdwatching in my local area. I like to try and capture the spirit of particular moments in time in the energy and directness of my brushstrokes. I mostly paint in acrylic, but sometimes also oil paint or watercolour. 


If you would like to receive regular updates on new work, exhibitions and other news from my studio please sign up for my email newletter using the form at the bottom of this page- I would love to share my latest art with you!
