My paintings are based on travels and my surroundings __also I like the discipline of drawing portraits .
I was commissioned to paint Mary Queen of Scots—I hung the Earl of Bothwell and Lord Darnley from her ears / as both her suitors .
I work on hand-made paper and collage relevant images until I achieve the texture I want. Travel up north inspires me to write poetry after I have been sketching in water-colour
