I was born in Scotland just outside Edinburgh and moved to Leicester in the 1980’s. My background is in Textile Design and I attained BA (Hons) in Textile Design from the Scottish College of Textiles (Heriot Watt University).

My paintings are influenced by a stylised view of nature and wildlife, mainly done in watercolour and acrylic inks. They contain a strong design element, with a riot of pattern revealed on closer inspection.
