Welcome to my studio​


All in a day's work

Each day in the studio is an adventure which is highly satisfying if a painting turns out well and mildly frustrating if it doesn't. 

I use a combination of bristle brush and palette knife and work with good quality oil paints mixed with a thick refined linseed oil to produce a rich and gooey texture to paint with. 

I choose a fine linen canvas for larger works whereas for the smaller paintings​ I prefer panel boards which I prepare by sanding and priming to give a smooth surface for painting.

B. 1952

I live and work in Argyll, Scotland, UK.

I won an art prize at junior school - that's about it!

Living on Scotland's amazing west coast it seems only natural that my work has been influenced by the beautiful nature of the surrounding coastline. I started painting when I retired from the day job and ever since have tried hard to capture the changing light and vivid colours that dominate this very beautiful corner of Scotland.


What my customers are saying

What an amazing airy light painting that transports you right back to Iona! Love it! Thank you!


More than pleased with this beautifully painted still life. The photos do not do justice to either the delicacy of the pattern on the vase nor the rich colours of the fruit. Well packed for postage and arrived safely and quickly.
