Having lived and worked in London, Venice, Treviso, Rome and various parts of Scotland, I am now settled in a beautiful conservation village in East Lothian.

I live La Dolce Vita: painting and teaching in my garden studio, studying with exceptional tutors at the wonderful Leith School of Art and travelling to my beloved Italy whenever possible. 

The figure is always a starting point which I explore with either fluid acrylics or translucent oils, mixed media and often gold leaf; other times, especially with more sculptural subjects, I use layers of oils and collage to create a more abstract outcome. 

I am inspired by the rich colours and superb quality of line of Egon Shiele, exhausted ballet dancers, Italy and cemeteries...
