I trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee Scotland (B.Des (hons)) and now live in beautiful Brisbane. After many years painting coastal scenes of Scotland I now take delight and inspiration from the vibrant landscapes and colours of Australia.

I believe the Australian landscape is an incredible mix of scenery from crystal blue water and iron red earth to silver sands and emerald forests all set under a truly big sky. It’s a magical place for an artist to stop, stretch out all their senses and really observe and understand the landscape. I strive to capture that sense of place and time through my use of colour, light, rhythm and brush marks.
I have been exploring Queensland and parts of South Australia, enjoying the scenes you will see reflected in my artwork. Further trips across the length and breadth of Australia are planned with even more opportunities to capture these moments in paint. Check back soon for fresh new pieces as part of my Australian series.
I have also enjoyed success as an illustrator. I have been honored to be involved with a heritage body, global gaming publishing companies, kickstarter projects and as a guest artist at events in the United Kingdom (Edinburgh World Heritage, Cubicle 7, Chaosium, AEG, Pelgrane Press, I Love the Corps Kickstarter, Conpulsion Edinburgh, Dragon Meet London).
I am open to discussing commissions. Please feel free to get in touch to check my availability. Thanks for checking out my artwork. Love to hear your thoughts.
