Originally from Aberdeen, I have lived in the beautiful Scottish Borders since the eighties after coming here to study. After graduating and working in the clothing industry, I set up my own craft business in the late nineties and have been creating ever since.
In the past 5/6 years I have returned to painting something I loved when I was younger and it has gradually become a bigger part of my life. After the re-evaluation that covid has caused, I have realised how much painting means to me and the importance it has in my life.
I love to paint flowers and I have had some success with these over the past few years. They reflect my love of nature and I like my work to be bright and joyful. I have also recently been working on painting the scenery around me. Finding a personal way to paint the landscapes surrounding us is very exciting to me.
