Biography




I live in Achiltibuie, a remote and beautiful village on the north west coast of Scotland. Moving here to run the Summer Isles Hotel in the mid 80s, I studied painting at Bridge House Art in Ullapool when the hotel was closed in the winter months. My work is exhibited permanently at Achiltibuie Artists Gallery and at the Summer Isles Hotel.

My paintings are inspired directly from the landscape. Life here is dominated by nature in every respect. Water, hills, bare croftland, wind, islands, isolation, weather and more weather I am drawn by the ever changing light, luminous colour and the extraordinary form that dominates the landscape.

The work is on canvas or board using mixed media - usually acrylic paint, ink, oil pastel and sometimes found papers. A specific location may be the starting point for a piece but the painting is allowed to develop organically, in an abstract direction, away from the original sketches and ideas.

Original works are posted on the site when available. In addition I have a number of limited edition prints available to order online. Please feel free to call me and discuss any requirements you may have.
