Born in the Calton Glasgow , went to school in Hamilton , but moved around a lot.
I first started painting in Tokyo in 2004, and since then I have developed a passion for art. Painting takes me into a world of discovery on the effects of colour. I believe my style to be impressionist meets figurative surrealism, but I am always trying out new techniques and subject matter.
I paint mainly for pleasure, but the pieces on this site are for sale unless specified as sold, commissioned or private collection. For any details of size or prices, please send me an email. Most canvasses can be removed from the frame for easier postage. I also do commissions so feel free to contact me.
