I am a self taught artist working from a studio at my home in Fochabers, Morayshire.

Trained initially as a graphic designer and illustrator, I took up commissioned portrait painting in 2002. Despite also painting many other subjects including landscapes, my passion was predominantly for wildlife and portraiture so that is what I specialised in for over 18 years. I wanted to capture the essence of my subject’s spirit in my paintings and was commissioned many times over the years by clients who appreciated my ability to do just that. It has always been a great pleasure to me to be able to bring joy to people via my painting.

Previous work has mostly been of a more traditional style whether painted in pastel or oil but this is a style that I have decided not to continue. I have begun to move away from that now, into a more contemporary style. Moving forwards in my art career I will be taking everything I have learned from these paintings over the years to grow into a new style of painting that closer fits my vision of the direction I'd like to see my work take. I have always been keen to challenge myself and try new approaches which has often resulted in some very unusual pieces which have been very well received. Sincere thanks to all who have facilitated this journey over the years by commissioning me to paint their loved ones and treasured memories. It has truly been my honour.

Please note that I am still available for commissions that fit my future vision so if you wish to take a leap of faith with me, I will be more than happy to discuss options with you so don’t be afraid to get in touch. That is where the magic happens.

My artwork has been displayed in numerous solo and group shows and has been acquired and commissioned by collectors across the UK and in the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe.
