Hi and welcome to my website.
I am a self-taught painter working mainly from my home in the Scottish Highlands. I paint mostly in oils, on landscapes and portraits. For landscapes I enjoy working directly from nature, locally and throughout the country.
Often my paintings begin as quick outdoor studies which are then developed in my studio. I like to be expressive and gestural in landscape painting, hopefully capturing not just a sense of place but also its mood and atmosphere. In portrait work I hope to capture something of the personality and spirit of the subject, either through composition or style of painting.
You can find examples of all of my work on the above drop-down menu bar. I'm happy to undertake commisioned work either for portraits or landscapes and can be contacted at
If you are interested in any of the paintings on this site please contact me at
