I take inspiration from the streets of Edinburgh as well as the landscape and coastline of East Lothian.I�m interested in exploring my surroundings and finding a means of expression often juxtaposing drawing and painting.I work with many kinds of materials from ink and acrylic through to charcoal and collage.I like to experiment with their differences to discover new mark making techniques.

I originally studied law and worked as a solicitor for a number of years before pursuing my interest in art by studying three short courses covering landscape, cityscape and mixed media at Edinburgh College of Art in 2011.I�ve worked full time as an artist since then.
