I make contemporary abstract landscape paintings from my home studio in Angus. I have a deep love of horizon lines found in remote and open spaces – and seek out colour, shapes and patterns in the places I visits. My work responds to the changing elements and the rhythm of the landscape and I explores the visual tensions that arise when sky meets sea meets land. I translates these experiences into bold, striking and abstract paintings. Each artwork is a reflection from a particular place – a memory of a moment.

Walking, running and cycling are an integral part of my practice – I explore my environment armed with a basic knowledge of the physical geography of the landscape, a geekish interest in maps and cloud formation and a desire to breathe in the intoxicating wilderness air!

I predominantly use acrylic paints to make my paintings. To create the energy and variety of marks I strive for, I also use a mixture of other media such as ink, pencils and oil pastels. I adopt a playful approach to my making – I enjoy experimenting with textures, opacity, patterns and colour. I use processes such as layering, scraping, distressing and re-painting.

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art + Design with a BDes (Hons) in Constructed Textiles, and went on to complete a Master of Fine Art. I have exhibited throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK and have artworks in private collections across the world.
