Compositions are created from life then translated to canvas or wooden panel in an expressive and intuitive way. I use acrylic for its immediacy and versatility and mix this with other media to enhance each piece.

I am an Edinburgh based artist making semi-abstract paintings in response to my local landscape. I am fascinated with colour and how it makes us feel, often exploring saturated palettes that reflect both my emotions in regard to the landscape and the changing seasons. I look at pattern and shape and am working to establish a visual language that describes my experiences.
