I am an Edinburgh based artist. Painting predominates my practice with drawing as a fundamental, underpinning aspect. Through my current work I examine the urban environment seeking simple, overlooked observations with a fascination for the mundane but necessary.
I was originally trained and practised as an architect and this background has gifted me with a passion for the built environment; the buildings and the spaces in between. I am intrigued and inspired by the alleyways, structures and derelict places which shape our towns and cities, as much as I am by the architecture.
My work has been described as having a sense of narrative and an atmosphere of calm which draws the viewer in. I explore the rhythm of light and shade, often on the seemingly ordinary; showing the everyday in a new light.
