I integrate all aspects of an artistic lifestyle and my environmental concerns into my practice. My work can be inward looking, paintings and songs examining psychological issues through dreams. I am also moved by my surroundings in the North East of Scotland, my deep concern for environmental degradation and the impact that we have on nature.
In the last few years I have been developing my practice through experimenting with handmade natural paint and printing techniques and integrating music, drawing and the sung and written word through the use of video and other media.

I am currently and artist in residence with Deveron Projects, Huntly. My joint project “Walking Without Walls” is with Gaza painter, May Murad and involves among other things, digital friendship and cultural exchange, wildplant journalling and culminates in the annual slow marathon in April 2018. Details here.

 

WORKSHOPS – See http://www.deveron-projects.com for details of my summer workshops. Painting workshops will resume after the summer.

This is a link to the off-grid project in which I live and have lived for the last ten years. Unfortunately on the 5th of December 2016 it suffered a devastating fire which destroyed nearly all our buildings. But we are still on the land, now living in caravans, starting over, but with ten years of  experience and lessons learned. You can follow the progress here.
