Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition Favourites List 2019

About Me

1989-1993  BA (Hons) - Edinburgh College of Art

1996-1997  MDes  - Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee

1998-1999  PGCE in  Primary Education at Moray House College of Education, Edinburgh

Since graduating from Edinburgh College of art in 1993, 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.

​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.

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.
