I am a self taught artist, born and bred in a little seaside town on the Firth of Forth to the East of the lovely Capital City of Edinburgh in Scotland.
I work from my little she shed at the bottom of the garden and am lucky enough to be endlessly inspired by my daily dog walks by the sea with our gorgeous Border Collie, Gracie.
Big skies, water and Scottish landscapes are my muse - not to mention the Scottish climate - usually four seasons in one day!
The unpredictable nature of encaustic medium is what keeps me interested and enthused in my work. Like the Scottish elements, we are never quite sure what the outcome of the day will be.
I like to explore the concept of views from above or from a distance and hope that my work will inspire others to take a different view of the landscapes around them and imagine how they would look from a different angle or perspective.
I would love my paintings to convey some of the sense of curiosity and excitement I get when creating them and perhaps pique your imagination or spark a creative process within you yourself as you explore the abstract elements of my work.
There's a hidden creative in all of us!
