My paintings are inspired by the Hebridean islands of Mull and Iona. I am fascinated by light on water and by the changing colour of the sea. I aim to depict light and atmosphere and draw the viewer into the painting.

I paint in oils and acrylics,  mainly with painting knives using texture and thick impasto.  I often incorporate sand from beach. This helps create light and movement within the painting.

Recently I have explored semi abstract themes of the sea.
