I am a landscape painter based in the beautiful Scottish Borders. I try to create paintings that capture a little of the escapism and joy that I feel from my surroundings.

I am excited by the endless possibilities of paint itself and work in a mixture of techniques always looking for ways to use the quality of the paint to capture a sensation. By adding texture and varying finishes I hope to bring a high level of surface interest to my art so they change under different lighting conditions.

My investigations centre around ways of conveying space, light and effect and I enjoy playing with dimensions and ways of seeing. It is the spatial presence of trees, watercourses and birds that continually draw me.

My paintings, although referenced from life, are completed in the studio. By the nature of this process painting becomes a meditative act of remembering and I am trying to capture a representation of a memory rather than specific realism.
