Oil paintings from the Highlands 

Impressions, Expressions, Abstractions

Welcome to 2024!
I am an expressionist oil painter inspired by landscape, seascape, and music; My home is Beauly in the Scottish Highlands and I work from my studio at Inverness Creative Academy. I also like to paint "en plein air", as nothing beats the immediacy of being outside and connected to the subject. Photographs don't do it for me, although I often use my own sketches for reference. Recently I have become interested in painting in a much more abstract way, which offers many exciting possibilities for developing my work this year.
You can see my paintings at various exhibitions and Scottish galleries and exhibitions (see the News page) or visit my studio by appointment.

I am happy to consider commissions on a no-obligation basis.

With the support of the WASPS Studios organisation, I am pleased to be able to offer the OWN ART scheme, which enables purchase of my paintings over £500 in ten interest-free monthly installments. The scheme is easy to set up and available to most purchasers.  Click here for details of the scheme, and contact me for more information.
