I live on the Isle of Arran, on the west coast
of Scotland.

I've always had an interest in the decorative arts.
Latterly I managed Arran Art Gallery
here on the island
which fuelled my interest further.

Painting mainly in oils and acrylics, I favour rich colour and texture.
I'm stimulated by any decoration:
whether painted, lettered, or stitched.
And gardens.
