Oil on canvas

Statement

After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1999, I  have continued  to develop and sell my work from my studio and local galleries in Glasgow. I paint and draw in a variety of mediums - oil on canvas/board, watercolour and pastel, charcoal etc.  My paintings range in subject matter but I try to capture a sense of the 'essence' or spirituality that exists in everything.
