I paint mainly in watercolour because I especially love the translucent qualities of this medium and the ability to create depth by applying in layers. My personal interest lies in expressing a sense of time and place through colour and form in landscape and in plantform. These, in all their stages of growth and decay, as well as the changing role and effect of man on the landscape, intrigue me and this is what I explore.
I grew up in the north East of Scotland in a farming community where the sweeping landscape gives a heightened sense of proportion and awareness of human involvement. I studied at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen, specialising in sculpture and drawing. Teacher training was also undertaken in Aberdeen. Rural Perthshire has been my home for many years where I have participated in the community as principal teacher of art and design.
