My love for painting means I am happiest when creating work with colour, marks and texture. My work so far has focused on abstract landscapes with my newest work combining abstracts and elements of the figure. The possibilities are endless with painting and one of the things I most enjoy is the freedom to create each piece from blank canvas to a, sometimes unexpected, final piece.

I am self taught although I have learned invaluable insights from courses at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Open Learning. After a career in student support within Higher Education I now combine painting with my jewellery design business and running my independent gift shop, Allium, in South Queensferry.
