Based in the Scottish Borders, the majority of my current work investigates the complexity of the Scottish natural landscape and associated 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.
