My current body of work is inspired by a recent sailing trip up the Western Isles of Scotland when I experienced all weather elements and light which I capture in my paintings.
Working with oils, thinners and primers on canvas and panel, I start with vigorous brushstrokes adding thin glazes and the landscapes emerge and evolve. I have also introduced some watercolours and pen and charcoal drawings and sketches.
I am a Cumbrian born artist who has lived and worked outdoors in the Scottish Borders for the past thirty years. I do not paint from photographs as the atmosphere and feel for the landscape is ingrained in my memory.
My last exhibition was very successful and I have painted various commissions, having sold work to private collectors as far afield as France, Belgium, Canada and America and Dubai.ist.
