After studying art at Hertfordshire College of Art and Design and Wimbledon School of Art I graduated with a BA hons in Fine Art Painting in 1987. Following travelling, working and teaching abroad, I settled in Scotland with my young family where I became fascinated and inspired by the Scottish landscape.
My contemporary art practice has developed from an early interest in the man-made rearrangement of the landscape caused by the bypass and gravel pits near my home town, via the solidity and complexity of London's cityscapes and the immense scale of the fading industrial sites of the docklands and the north of England, to a preoccupation with the mountains, forms and habitats of Scotland's landscapes. I paint, draw and make artist books as well as work on projects collaboratively with other artists.
Since November 2013 I have been vice chair on the committee of the Perthshire Visual Arts Forum pvaf.org.uk organising exhibitions, collaborative projects and events, workshops, coordinating guest speakers and utilising the website and social media for promotion.
