Hi there! - thanks for visiting my website.
A bit about me:- I work from my studio at home on the south side of Glasgow. I pursued a career as an engineer in my 'other life' having started as an apprentice structural draughtsman in the days of drawing boards and pencils and pens but I have always been interested in recreational drawing and painting and I started exhibiting and selling my work after joining a local art group about twenty or so years ago.
I suppose I would be considered to be 'self-taught' but over the years I have attended many excellent artist demonstrations and much of what I practise now I have learned from these demonstrations; the use of materials, composition, colour etc.. I have sketched and painted in various media over the years including pastels and watercolour but I now use mainly acrylics on canvas. The basis of my paintings is mainly in the form of landscapes but my more recent work usually has a figurative element which I find can be a lot of fun. I think it would be fair to say that there is a bit of a technical drawing style to my artwork as the two sides of my brain wrestle with the images on the canvas - but that's partly what I find makes it interesting!
I hope you enjoy the images and please feel free to contact me if you have any queries or wish to discuss my work further or perhaps order a print or purchase an original painting.
