Water and pigment, for me it's a magical combination.
I find my inspiration in the effect of light and weather on the landscape. Dramatic stormy skies, or days when scudding clouds cast shadows on the ground; each is equally interesting. Old, crumbling buildings are another subject that I look for. I love their interesting shapes, and their nooks and crannies, as well as the sense of history in them.
My work is in watercolour. I paint in a traditional manner, inspired especially by late 19th and early 20th Century masters.
I come from an artistic family and I have always had an interest in art of various kinds. I spent a short time following a more conventional career in agricultural research, but my creativity needed an outlet. I chose to take a different direction with my life, and I taught myself how to paint with watercolour.
I grew up in the south of England, but my mother was Scottish, which gave me a love of Scotland and its landscapes. I now live in Caithness, and my studio is on the edge of the wild and open Flow Country. I have shown my work throughout the Highland area, and have had buyers from the UK, USA and Europe. Since 2007, I have exhibited with the Society of Caithness Artists. In the first year I was fortunate to attract the attention of His Majesty King Charles III. Since then the King has become a regular patron and has built a large collection of my paintings at the Castle of Mey.
