The wilderness, beauty and isolation on the west coast of Scotland had a dramatic impact on me and was the initial impetus for starting to draw/photograph in an attempt to capture what I was feeling and seeing. This experience ‘sparked’ my emotions and has continued to be a major influence in my work.
As my work evolves, shapes and colour are becoming more important almost regardless of the subject. Some elements are becoming quite abstract & impressionistic.
I enjoy working with a variety of media, including pen and ink, gold leaf, pencil, intaglio, 3D mixed media and photography
