I am a painter printmaker creating 0ils, acrylics, prints and works in watercolour.   My most recent printmaking project in 2016 involved creating an edition of 25 linocuts, each measuring 20 x 20 cms at Dunfermline Printmakers Workshop for an exchange with other printmaking workshops organised by Hotbed Press, Salford.

My painting in tempera entitled “Sketching in the Square” was accepted into The W. Gordon Smith Award Exhibition at The Dovecot Gallery in Edinburgh in January,2016 where it was purchased by the Dean of UnderGraduate Studies at Edinburgh University.

My proposal for a print entitled “Uplighters” based on the staging inside the Perth Concert Hall, involving sugarlift etching and woodcut was selected by Perth Art Gallery, Scotland, for their  curated modern exhibition in October, 2016, and my watercolour “Loch Leven Castle” was accepted into the Royal Scottish Society of Watercolourists Autumn Exhibition in The Stirling Smith Art Gallery in November, 2016.
I look forward to participating with other members of Dunfermline Printmakers in a cultural exchange with Japanese papermakers in 2017.

Having been successful in becoming a Wildcard in The Sky Landscape Artist of the Year Competition in June 2016, I took part in the second day’s painting session at Wray Castle near Ambleside in the Lake District and apart from the painting I completed, went on to create two more acrylic paintings on canvas after returning home, based on the experience of being close to Lake Windermere.

Publications which include my prints are “Stone Lithography” and “Plate Lithography” by Paul Croft. Prior to being a member of Dunfermline Printmakers, I studied Lithography at Edinburgh Printmakers. From there I exhibited in the 4th International Symposium in Tidaholm, Sweden.
