MORE ABOUT MY ART
PASSION I have had a lifelong passion for drawing and painting although for practical reasons art was not my first career choice. In 2003 I decided to take art more seriously and enrolled at Glasgow School of Art to study part time. I began marketing my work professionally in 2007 and my art career has developed from there.
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 adstract 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. One of my paintings was shortlisted for the 2017 Ken Bromley Cover Competition.
GALLERIES My work is exhibited in a range of galleries throughout Scotland. You can see details on the MY GALLERIES page. This is a really enjoyable part of my work. It’s always fun to visit the galleries to deliver new paintings and I work with some lovely people. All of my galleries have access to my work.
DELIVERY OF PAINTINGS If you do not live near any of my galleries – my paintings can be posted to anywhere in the UK. You can order paintings direct from the web site. Alternatively – most of my galleries will ship paintings.
GREETINGS CARDS My work is published as greetings cards by DoricMor. My cards are available to buy from stockists throughout the UK.
MY STUDIO I work from my small studio in Giffnock, Glasgow. 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 pay a visit to the studio to see work is in progress. I enjoy meeting people and answering questions about my art. Please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone or text to 07973860447 if you would like to visit.
GICLEE PRINTS Many of my paintings are available reproduced as quality fine art prints. The Arran Gallery stock my giclee prints of Arran. If you are visiting Arran please go along to this lovely gallery in Whiting Bay where you can see a range of my prints. You can also purchase prints direct from my web site. Prints can be collected from Giffnock or they can be posted to anywhere in the UK.
