Graduated from Edinburgh College of Art 1970. Teacher of Art &Design until 2008. Professional Member of Visual Arts Scotland since 2006.
I live and paint in the Borders village of Yetholm and my paintings relate to the local landscape. Changing light, weather and their effect on the atmosphere and mood of my subjects are of great interest to me.
I use a water based underpainting then work and rework with glazes of colour until the image becomes established. This process can take weeks but strangely occasionally immediate.
