I seemed to be born with a passion for creativity. If there was something to draw, paint or build as a I child, I did it.
After winning prizes for my art as young as 10, I went on to study at Edinburgh College of Art. Afterwards, I went into the business world. However, my creativity never left me - it just came out in different ways: how I decorated our house, how I presented in my career, and the things I made for my children. However I have been painting in earnest again for about 6 years.
In 2017 I exhibited at the Art Walk, Porty. In 2018 I took part in the 'Art for Animals' exhibition in the Breeze Gallery, Jenners, Edinburgh. I have completed over 12 commissions in the last year as well.
I enjoy giving people pleasure through painting living things and the occasional landscape in my own style. I love portraying people and animals, and in particular their eyes. It’s true – the eyes have it!
