My art practice is figurative and still life painting, acrylic on canvas. I aim to create a surreal and ambiguous atmosphere through the subject choice and composition. I am inspired by the history of portraiture and decorative symbolism in fine art.
I am a Scottish painter born in Edinburgh and I work from my studio in the Scottish Borders. I have a BA (Hons) degree in Drawing and Painting from Edinburgh College of Art and a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Fashion Design from Heriot Watt University. I now focus on large scale figurative and still life paintings. My painting ‘Girl with Yellow Flowers’ was selected for the final of the Scottish Portrait Awards 2019, and my painting ‘Two Girls’ was awarded an ANGUSalive Purchase Prize 2018 and is now in the Angus Fine Art Collection. In March 2020 I will be developing new work on a Hospitalfield Interdisciplinary Residency.
