“My paintings reflect the fascination I have with the natural world, mostly what surrounds me in my immediate environment. I live in the Scottish Borders, where the landscape is so beautiful and varied - a rich source of inspiration, from Belted Galloway cattle to Scottish Blackface sheep, barn owls to wrens. I also have a love of indoor objects of beauty too, such as precious mementos and collections...private wee secrets.”
