Background/childhood influences: I remember travelling around Scotland as a child, and being amazed and enchanted by the Scottish wild places, villages, cottages, harbours, scenery and landscape; by the dramatic colours, moods and atmosphere. Since moving to the countryside as an adult, I have tried to rediscover the immediacy of those first perceptions, and re-engage with the childlike sense of discovery and adventure.
Artistic concept: I now try to paint with the immediacy of those first perceptions, so that every painting is a new discovery of colour/colour mixture, tone, and composition. The technique is a vehicle to express those spontaneous bursts of emotion: joy, exhilaration, wonder, sublimity, appreciation of beauty etc upon coming across a particular scene which impresses and captivates me. Each painting is a celebration of colour and emotion, woven in with a love of the Scottish landscape, themes and subjects. Childlike inspiration combined with a certain technical maturity yields genuine emotional content and satisfying clarity of expression.
Wider intentions: Ultimately I want my art to be enjoyed, and to enrich people and spaces with fresh perception, enlivening colour, and ingenuity. It is also an attempt to contribute to a contemporary Scottish artistic language that gives visual expression to uniquely Scottish themes.
