My paintings are my way of exploring my environment.

I have always been interested in nature and the way our life is affected by it. I make drawings of plants, birds, animals and insects which live in the area which I also occupy. I am acutely aware of the fragile balance in which we all exist.

I am showing work with Gallery Q in September as part of an exhibition to coincide with the opening of the V&A Dundee.

The Artichoke Gallery is a new venue for me and I am showing with them in October, “Natural Living,” 6th Oct-22nd Dec.
