Born and raised in Edinburgh, I went to university at St Andrews and started my career in non-profit management consultancy in the US. Based in London for the past 18 years, I have been lucky enough to take a number of courses at Putney School of Art and Design in painting, drawing and etching, developing a hobby into a practice.

A lot of my inspiration comes from my south-west London neighbourhood and time spent in the Orkney Isles and on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. I love to get immersed in a landscape, whether spectacular or everyday, trying to express the colours and forms that give a sense of the place and its beauty.
