I was born in Zambia and brought up in Scotland. I studied at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art between 1986 and 1991.
I have had illustration work published in The Daily Telegraph, The Times Educational Supplement, The Guardian, The Spectator and Carlos Magazine.
In 2016, I won the Ann Redpath Painting Prize.
I' ve shown at the Royal Academies in London and Edinburgh, at Ros Issa's gallery in London, and at the Union Gallery in Edinburgh and Steven Walton's Gallery in Bury St Edmonds.
I often travel, usually to Europe, the Middle East or within Latin America.
