Painting & Drawing / Mixed Media • Purple Route

Our fragile environment is celebrated in my colourful, semi-abstract paintings. The Galloway landscape is my subject, reflecting a deep love and understanding of the four seasons and the opportunity they bring for adventures in paint.

My Practice

I’m primarily a landscape painter based in Twynholm near Kirkcudbright. I begin with sketch books, weather permitting, in the surrounding area usually using my favourite carbon pencils. Back in the studio I work up the images in acrylic and mixed media striving towards a coherent body of work which reflects a sense of place.

Tools & Materials

My studio is a purpose built artistic space adjacent to my home. I use all painting media and go through phases where, at certain times, I prefer some over others. Presently, I’m working in acrylic, experimenting with different tools to apply the paint.
