I was born in 1987 and graduated in Drawing and Painting from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010. I was the winner of the 2011 Jolomo Painting Award and won a prize at the inaugural W Gordon Smith Award for painting.
I am a painter who immerses himself deeply in the landscape and in the artistic process of representing it. My work evokes atmospheres, especially through the representation of light, shadow and reflections. Some of my images are almost abstract, others quite clearly representational, produced through intense scrutiny of details in the landscape and vistas, views from particular vantage points all with their possibility for further imaginative exploration. I am an artist who dreams as he sees and concentrates deeply as he paints, enabling others who view my work to be transported in a similar way. The images I paint are positive, beautiful and lyrical, those of a precious environment to be nurtured and celebrated.
