I grew up in the North East of England – where I completed my Foundation Course and BA Hons in History of Art. Life then took me to London until 1995 when I relocated to Edinburgh. In 2012, having taken time out to raise my family, I joined Leith School of Art to revisit and develop my artistic practice, first as a part-time student and then as a student on the specialised Landscape Course.
As a landscape artist my work is rooted in the investigation of an environment, with a focus on my reminiscence of place and space. I immerse myself in its character through initial sketchbook observations, then develop these influences into a series of studio based discoveries. Released from direct representation I am free to explore my remembered experience, aiming to capture my understanding of a locale through considered use of light, colour and tone. Drawn marks often add dimension to the surface as I strive to explore the abstract values, each exploration informing the next.
