ABOUT MY ART
I was born in Glasgow and I have always had a passion for drawing and painting. The opportunity to study at Glasgow School of Art from 2003 – 2006 (part time and summer school) was inspirational and gave me the courage to embark on a new career. I now work full time as an artist from my studio in Giffnock.
It is an artist’s dream to live near the islands of the west coast of Scotland. I love to visit the Hebridean Islands where beaches are nothing short of spectacular. The colours are amazing and I try to capture the beauty in my paintings using a vivid palette and texture.
WILDFLOWERS AND FLOWERS
I am inspired by the wildflowers in nature and pretty flowers in favourite vases. I am always attracted by colour and the beauty of nature.
MY COLOUR PALETTE
People often ask me about my use of colour. I work in oil paint and like the drying time of this medium, which gives me time to mix and blend colours. I don’t often use pure colour. Instead, I like to mix colours together on the palette, often enjoying the surprise of colour blending.
These are my favourite themes: SEASCAPES; COTTAGES and FARMHOUSES; VASES OF FLOWERS and GARDEN PAINTINGS.
SIZE OF PAINTINGS
I enjoy working on a range of canvas sizes – from tiny unframed canvas boards – to large canvases measuring 75 x 75cm.
COMMISSIONED PAINTINGS I always enjoy when people come to me and ask me to paint a particular scene. I have painted wedding venues, holiday cottages, favourite beaches, special places and wedding bouquets. Please ask if you have any ideas.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the people who have bought my original art and/or my giclee prints. I love being an artist and greatly appreciate the support from all the people who like what I create.
