I paint every day in acrylic or goache . Right now I am teaching myself soft pastel painting.
I’m usually found walking around my home studio with paint in my hair or up a hill somewhere with my dog, which helps me think up new ideas.
After playing around with different painting scenes and colour, I’ve developed a naive / folk art style which I’m most comfortable with. I didn’t go to art school so I don’t know the art “rules”, I just paint what’s in my heart at the time. I very rarely know what the painting is going to be until it’s created.
Coastal scenes, landscapes, trees, gardens, poppies, peacocks, pheasants, dancers, mothers, cityscapes, couple paintings & more, are some of my featured subjects .
I like touches of life in my paintings. Birds, bees, buildings and people all add an element of interest to a painting.I take my inspiration from little things in everyday life
My paintings are about colourful worlds you can step inside of.
I like to use my palette knife painting techniques to capture precious moments through a modern impressionistic style.
It’s such a privilege to have people purchase my art to hang in their home. From my wee stall in the Grassmarket, my art has now sold around the world. Thank you to everyone who has ever bought a painting from me.
My original paintings, prints and cards are available to buy online and at markets, galleries, and some craft stores around Scotland. .
After living away for 5 years in Australia and Guernsey, and Channel Islands, I’m happy to be home in Scotland, which is the best place in the World.
I am a big animal lover and I currently live in a small village in Fife with Obi the oversized puppy and 3 crazy cats in our tiny house of love.
My favourite things are my animals the countryside and hiking, but most of all, the wonderful people we meet along the way in this life.
Come say hi to me at the markets.
