I make contemporary abstract landscape paintings. My eye is drawn towards horizon lines, colour, marks and shapes in the landscape. I have a passion for remote and open spaces and explore the visual tensions that arise when sky meets sea meets land. I translates these experiences into bold, striking and abstract depictions of a place. Each painting is a reflection from a particular place, a memory of a moment.

Exploring my environment on foot and bike is an important part of my practice – armed with a basic knowledge of the physical geography of the landscape, a geekish interest in maps and cloud formation and a desire to explore and breathe in the intoxicating wilderness air! My paintings are a response to these experiences – they explore a sense of place and capture the rhythm of the landscape.

The paintings are predominantly made using acrylic paints. I use different processes such as layering, scraping, re-painting and distressing. I love to play with textures, opacity, patterns and colours and will often work further into the paintings with ink, pencils and oil pastels to create interesting marks and effects.

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art + Design with a BDes (Hons) in Constructed Textiles, and went on to complete a Master of Fine Art. I have exhibited throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK and have artworks in private collections across the world.
