“Just painting my soul…after all, it’s cheaper than therapy!”

As an abstract expressionist painter, my work allows me a vital, expressive voice where I can communicate my thoughts and feelings.

I am heavily influenced and inspired by my two young children and motherhood as a role, therefore my work is a response to the complex range of emotions I experience on a daily basis.

My paintings are an emerging process, I often discover things by accident and then let this dictate the direction of the painting.  My practice always involves listening to music….this enables me to perform a dance of lively mark making, colour and energy which eventually allows me to create a piece that I feel resolves, heals and satisfies an inner yearning for harmony.  The process is fundamentally the most important part for me.

I was born and raised in Scotland and studied Fine Art and Contemporary Art Practice through the University of Highlands and Islands.  I currently live and work in Perthshire, Scotland.
My paintings are in collections throughout the UK and Canada.
