The work I am displaying today, has been inspired in part by the wonderful Isle of Bute. Living with the most amazing natural colours and wildlife. I began my artists journey at Alva Academy, Clackmannanshire in the 70s looking out on to the Ochil hills. After Scottish Highers I went on to university as a mature student gaining a degree in European Studies and Politics. The teaching that followed ended up encompassing many subjects including Art. I have been fortunate to exhibit in a gallery in Essex and of late, have become very interested in the works of Van Gogh and Richter. I try and bring a vibrancy to the pictures which I hope you will appreciate.
