I am a watercolour painter in Caithness, in the North of Scotland. The rugged beauty of these northern landscapes and coastlines provides me with a never-ending supply of subjects. I am also interested in the history of the land, from the prehistoric sites to the isolated old farmsteads and abandoned communities.
My work is figurative and traditional, rooted in two centuries of British watercolour, and I am essentially a purist and rarely use mixed media. I achieve my desired results with simple washes and a straightforward process, although it can often feel far from simple with watercolour!
I sell regularly in Caithness and Sutherland, and send work further afield. My customers are people who appreciate traditional landscape paintings, and many have built up personal collections, including HRH The Prince of Wales and members of his Household.
I often accept commissions to paint particular subjects, for presents or special occasions.
Paintings are for sale unframed.

"Got my painting! It's awesome! The image on the computer just didn't do it justice. The only issue I have now is the fact I want it in my office and my wife wants it in the den. Hope your painting doesn't wind up in divorce court! Thanks again and keep them coming."
"Just to say the painting arrived today and it is fantastic. I am really pleased with it. I think it captures the scene brilliantly. Well done."
"I have received your painting yesterday and as usual very pleased with the result. You should have seen me un-packaging the parcel it was like all my Christmases rolled into one."
"Thank you for the painting, it arrived safely this morning. I can’t wait to get it framed and hung. I love your paintings, you seem to be able to capture the colours, wildness and beauty of the Scottish countryside. When I holiday in Scotland I am always sad to leave, your paintings remind me of happy times spent there."
"My daughter had tears streaming down her face and I thought something was wrong, but she told me that she was just emotional about the lovely painting that she had received".
"I have received the two pictures today and am extremely pleased with your work."
"I received painting today extremely pleased again with your work. I look forward to buying from you again, already have an idea. Thank you again for your service."
"Thank you for delivering the paintings.... very happy with them seeing them on the internet doesn't do them justice. Look forward to seeing more of your work and purchasing from you in the near future."
"I was fortunate to purchase two of your watercolours on a recent visit to the Castle of Mey with HRH The Prince of Wales. I am now an admirer of your work !!"
"Thank you so much for my painting. Its just stunning! I love it. You’ve captured the beautiful countryside perfectly – I feel I could just step into the painting. It’s going in pride of place on my lounge wall where I will be able to daydream to my hearts content."
"We thought that you would like to know that the watercolour has arrived safely. It is absolutely beautiful, and we are sure that our son will be delighted with it when we give it to him for his birthday."
