I am a classically-trained artist working in a long tradition of figurative drawing and painting. My studio is a lovely converted Victorian stables and is equipped with great lighting, beechwood easels and all the kit you would expect.

About My Practice

I work direct from life as far as possible – reality observed gives the best results. I paint landscape, still life, flowers, animals and people. I teach regularly in my studio and out and about in Dumfries and Galloway.

Tools & Materials

I work in oil paint, pastels and charcoal. Oil paint is my favourite medium as it is both forgiving and allows full expression. Pastels are subtle and also very versatile in the effects possible. Charcoal is a wonderful monochrome medium to learn about the effects of light and shade. Charcoal is also very expressive in the hands of an experienced artist.
