Having left school at 15 in 1965 I have worked at a variety of jobs
I went to Glasgow Art School as a mature student aged 37 in 1987-91.

Art has always been my passion since my early teens in school at the art class.
I taught myself how to paint and draw since leaving school and after graduating finally realised my dream to become an artist late in life.

Whilst my work is mainly abstract, I also paint in a realistic fashion,believing that contemporary artists need not limit themselves to a single style.
I paint mostly in a direct spontaneous way, working mainly In Oil, Watercolour, Acrylic, Sculpture and Mixed Media.
I develop my themes simultaneously, sometimes working on 3 or more themes at the same time over a period of time .
Often cross influence development occurs and leads me to discover new and exciting ways to explore different fields and drives me forward.

My influence are wide-ranging, and I always have had a great interest in all forms and schools of art from the early Renaissance in Northern Europe and Italy, which was my first love, through to the present-day abstractionist and wider contemporary movements.
Abstract expressionist and figurative expressionist art and Art history throughout the ages remain a great influence and ongoing passion for me,as does contemporary art in general.
My work has been accepted and shown in the
Royal Scottish Academy annual exhibition.Royal Scottish Watercolour exhibitions.
Royal Watercolour (English) Society competitions exhibitions (Bankside Gallery London).
And more recently exhibit regularly at Lamond Gallery Bearsden and Smithy Gallery Blanefield.
Also in private collections in the UK and abroad.
