A warm welcome to my website.

A Scottish artist from Fife I have created works on a range of themes from landscape to figurative projects depicting Scottish industries including fishing, whaling and St Kilda's bird culture. A selection of this work can be viewed from the links at my Gallery.

Much of my work is related to my connection with my sea faring ancestors from the East Coast of Scotland. My portraits of three fishermen titled 'Ancestral Tryptych' can often be viewed at the Zulu Gallery at The Scottish Fisheries Museum and online at Art UK.

I recently completed a series of  drawings developed over 20 years in conté and charcoal depicting dramatic scenes inspired by the story of Brendan the Navigators epic journey across the Atlantic in a curragh and John O'Meara's translation of 'The Voyage of St Brendan - Journey to the promised land'. This suite of large scale figurative drawings titled 'The Navigatio' was exhibited in Spring 2017 at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, Anstruther.

I hope you enjoy what you see here.
