I make Expressionist paintings and Figurative drawings, including life drawing, line and wash illustration, and some portraiture. I have been concentrating on the Dynamic side of drawing for some years now, looking to working with expressive lines for drawings with feeling and energy. In painting, I’ve been making some narrative work, telling a story within the painting, as well as abstract Expressionist painting, making atmospheres of mood and place.
I trained at Glasgow School of Art 1982-87. I worked from a studio at Cambo from 1993 – 2016 and am still involved in teaching art classes there. I’ve also taught at Fife College, community classes and Life drawing workshops. I have been a member of East Fife Open Studios, and Pittenweem arts festival, and this year I’ve shown in Upstairs @ J & G Innes in St Andrews in a special Dynamic Drawing show.
