I started the painting using oil bars for the first time, wanting a quick sketch, and then decided to paint parts in oils. I like the balance of drawing and painting and think it works. My sitter, Ann Vance, is a flamboyant character. She is an old art school friend, a fantastic painter and is as bold as the clothes she wears. I love her green jacket!
I am based in Irvine, currently painting full time. I graduated from Glasgow school of art with a 1st class degree and a highly commended post-graduate diploma.
