Welcome to my blog


I am a visual artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I incorporate my own poetry into my artwork, sometimes collaging it into pieces, sometimes writing about paintings and sometimes inspiring paintings.

In the summer of 2018 I attended a concert of Vaughan Willams Sea Symphony at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh. It was mesmerising. I realised then that I wanted my next series of paintings to be inspired by this piece of music and poetry. My next subject would be the sea.

Here are my first attempts, Serenity 1 and 2. These triptychs represent what I needed at a difficult time in my life as my elderly mother lay seriously ill in hospital.
