I am a cook who loves to paint.

I studied at the Leith school of art under the tuition of Jemma Derbyshire and followed her to Paintbox art school in East Lothian – she is my mentor.

My work is primarily abstract using colour and simple lines to capture a sense of place.Always attracted to the colours, textures and feel of food,I also paint still life in different media, trying to give a sense of simple beauty using colour to evoke its provenance.
