I have loved drawing and painting since childhood, and have recently returned to painting after being inspired by my return to live in Highland Perthshire, where I grew up.The beauty of the surrounding area and the constantly changing light on the hills challenges me to capture the special qualities of the scenery of the Scottish Highlands.I am currently teaching in Killin, and my daily commute from Crieff along the shores of Loch Earn and over Glen Ogle is both a delight and a torture at times!However, it undoubtedly provides me with a daily dose of gorgeousness which I hope finds its way into my paintings.
