ALL ABOUT ING..
My creative life has been a winding
path. I always want to be making,
painting or drawing something, but the
shape and form this has taken has
changed over the decades. I studied art,
photography, printmaking and journalism,
as if preparing for the changes ahead..
From 2011 to 2020 I painted
in my open studio which was part of
the business I ran with my partner Stuart - Bon Papillon in Edinburgh's New Town. I have always been quite prolific and I sold a lot of work all over the world, with quite a few portrait commissions in the last few years.
Then Covid 19 turned all our worlds around.
To meet this challenge I returned to my college love of printmaking, and am currently producing lino print editions, gradually developing my skills, ideas and equipment in my home studio in Edinburgh. I am now fully freelance as our business premises has run out of lease and we are freeing ourselves up and seeing which direction the coming years take us! (This may well have something to do with bikes as well as printmaking and framing...)
On sale on this website are some of my oil paintings left over from the gallery, along with an every-increasing stock of my printmaking. My Etsy site has the main runs of limited edition prints starting at only £22 and on this site I am offering my one-off prints and experimental proofs.
