PASSION I began marketing my work professionally in 2007 and my art career has developed from there. I am now a full time artist working from my studio in Giffnock, East Renfrewshire. I have had a lifelong passion for drawing and painting. I studied at Glasgow School of Art from 2003 – 2006 – part time and summer school. The quality of art tuition at GSA is superb and this experience was inspirational.
STYLE My style of painting is contemporary and I enjoy depicting landscape and studio still life. Colour and texture is what I love. My landscape paintings are full of colour and light. Scenes are depicted with emphasis on realism and attention to detail combined with more abstract brush strokes. Still life and floral pieces are bold and carefully composed.
RECOGNITION My work was featured on the BBC One Show Summer Exhibition and I have paintings hanging in the Scottish Parliament Building. My paintings were shortlisted for the 2017 and 2018 Ken Bromley Cover Competition.
GALLERIES My work is exhibited in a range of Scottish galleries and one gallery near Cambridge. You can see details on the MY GALLERIES page.
GREETINGS CARDS My work is published as greetings cards by DoricMor. My cards are available to buy from stockists throughout the UK. The Arran Gallery stock a large range of my cards.
MY STUDIO I work in oil and the paintings take a while to dry before they are framed – so there is always lots of work in progress to see . You are very welcome to visit to my studio in Giffnock to see work is in progress. I enjoy meeting people and answering questions about my art. Please phone or text to 07973860447 or e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to visit.
GICLEE PRINTS Some of my paintings are reproduced as quality fine art prints. They are available from The Arran Gallery.
