Oil painting is my primary medium. I use dark glazes to build up atmosphere contrasting this with thick opaque layers of paint. I concentrate on the figure, creating emotive poetic works, strong in their execution, yet vulnerably sensitive. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art I have exhibited extensively within the United Kingdom and Europe and won awards from The Royal Glasgow Institute, the Paisley Annual Exhibition and The National Open Art Exhibition, among others. My work is held in many private collections.
