I’m based in Fife, on the East Coast of Scotland, close to Edinburgh. Local scenes appear frequently in my work. In my opinion, it’s a great place to live.


I mostly paint in the realist style, and I’ve been called a ‘painter of detail’, but sometimes I stray into the realms of abstract, collage and mixed media art.


I’ve been painting for many years. Along the way I’ve won awards and commendations and had work featured in magazines, websites, galleries and public exhibitions.


My range of subject matter is fairly wide. I describe my preferred subjects as urban scenes, architectural detail, landscapes, boats, harbours, figures and still life.
