I am Scottish and spent my childhood surrounded by rolling hills, grassy meadows, rugged coast, mysterious lochs and meandering rivers. With joyful visits beyond the borders of Fife taking me to more breathtaking scenery, stunning glens and majestic mountains. So it's not surprising that the Scottish landscape continues to influence my work, no matter where I live.
Ideas, forms, shapes, emotions, feelings, mental snapshots meld and build in my mind’s eye. That gives me the starting point for a painting or a series of work. But once I begin work on that first, fresh new surface, I'm still leaving it open for things to develop naturally.
I work on several pieces at once, building up layer after layer, adding lovely texture and marks.
Letting things evolve as they will. Once the painting direction reveals itself, I start making more specific decisions about composition and colours. Layering and adding texture and details until I feel that the painting is the best that I can make it.
Energy, movement, space, bold sweeps and strokes combined with tempting texture, metallics and iridescence.
To attract not only your eye, but also incite a desire to sweep your fingers across the surface!
