 I am an Edinburgh based figurative artist. Although with no formal training, I was extremely fortunate to receive individual tuition from an exceptionally talented figurative artist where the emphasis was on representational accuracy, technique and the development of interesting imagery.

From the beginning, I was drawn to paint the human figure. The nuance and subtlety of colour and form, the interplay of light and shade, and body language or expression can combine to draw the viewer in. Perhaps there is a narrative element or a curiosity about the subject. Generally, the paintings are of a single figure in space with simple, uncluttered backgrounds allowing the focus to fall on the figure and engage the viewer.

I have also been painting land and seascapes mainly due to a number of enquiries for these subjects.

Previously, my career was in senior financial management with a global financial services company.
