Since graduating from Edinburgh College of art in 1993 with a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Painting, and a sell-out degree show, I have exhibited and sold work regularly in galleries across Britain, including the RSA, SSA the RSW, the RBA, Mall Galleries and most recently in the Royal Academy summer exhibition, London.
In 1997, I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art with a Master of Design - MDes.
My work is based on gardens, trying to reflect the brevity of life, beauty, toil, energy, death and rebirth that is observed in the cycle of life within the garden.
I strive to evoke this through the battles I have while creating the work. My art is becoming increasingly more referential and not entirely realistic inviting the viewer's participation and hopefully giving glimpses into the life, toil, death and rebirth of the creative journey.
