Based in the Scottish Borders, the majority of my current work investigates the complexity of the Scottish natural landscape and urban interference. My practice is predominantly painting and illustration, merging a Futurist style drawing, often conceived from automatic mark-making, worked-up into an abstract landscape – the initial free drawing often dictates the subject, theme, or a collage of what the subconscious has revealed.
Since 2015, my work has chiefly focused on Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. I was born and grew up in Edinburgh. Watching its social and architectural change, in my own lifetime, is a constant interest which feeds my research and work.
