I studied Drawing & Painting at Glasgow School of Art from 1979 until 1983.   I was taught by James D Robertson, Barbara Rae, Jack Knox and John Cunningham.

James D Robertson was my mentor from 2005 until his death in 2010.

I’m a painter.    I tend to be drawn to subjects that visually stimulate me.   In addition, the process and the craft of making paintings are very important to me, so draughtsmanship, mark making, composition and the intelligent use of colour are all key tenets of my work.    I try to make best use of these tools to create rich and dynamic paintings.
