I work in a variety of media but predominately watercolour, which I love for its fluidity, freshness and unpredictability, properties which I feel are echoic of Scotland itself.
Many of my paintings feature the ever-changing sea, mysterious woods or the tiny, yet bold, wildflowers that carpet the countryside. I paint spontaneously, preferring not to over plan so that I can work with the medium rather than try to restrain it. This allows the painting to change and progress with each piece of work becoming an exploration , not just of my subject but also of the paint and it's interaction with water and paper.
I maintain an element of experimentation within my work so that painting continues to be an adventure and quite simply, a joy.
