I spent the last 10 years living as an expat in Singapore, Kenya and Bali which influenced my work in many ways with colour, subject matter and dramatic Island skies. I�m now based back in my hometown of Edinburgh which has inspired me tocontinue my love of seascapes and dramatic skies. I�m currently working on a new collection of my favourite childhood beaches, Portobello, Cramond and Northberwick. I mainly work in soft pastels and oil paints which enables me to work quickly when painting outside with the finishing touches completed in my studio.
