Edinburgh based painter

In my work I explore themes of memory, imagination, permanence and experience

I am interested in how we experience and make sense of the world, contrasts, mythological beliefs, how we used to imagination to visualise far away places before the advent of photography, the fleeting nature of human experience, time perspective, mountains were here a long time before we were here and they’ll be there a long time after we’ve gone 

Those are some of the ideas, but not the whole story, like most painters I enjoy the alchemy of taking raw materials, pigments, oil, canvas and creating images, fabulous paint.  Pigment is all important, in a way the images are vehicle for the colours, the process is as much a part of the outcome as the idea

This site has my current work and history so you can see how it evolves. Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy looking
