"Living in Scotland I am lucky to have a wide variety of romantic, historical and beautiful scenery nearby which opens my imagination and inspires me to delve into the realms of fantasy and myth for my paintings. Through trial and error (lots of error) I am continually pushing my abilities, which in turn has expanded my creativity in the direction of the perfectionist. Although recent full time education was a steppingstone in the right direction, I have actually learned more through my own application, library books and scrutiny of other peoples work.
My personal work has been alikened to storytelling through imagery, which has been an unconcious thought process. Through progression my paintings develop to a quality that in itself still continues to evolve".
