My two main subjects are the body and my home city, Edinburgh, which I love the bones (and stones) of.
The city has been a interest of mine for some time. The colours of Edinburgh are sombre, but the brooding buildings and the weather have a particular character and expressiveness that remains untackled by many painters. I am drawn to particular features – odd incongruous blocks highlighted amongst the tenements. Tenements have an emotional kick for me.
I’ve trained at Leith School of Art, Glasgow School of Art and studied Fine Art and English Literature at Exeter University. I’m part of the Naked Aye Collective in Edinburgh – a group of artists, performers, film-makers and life-models who seek to breathe new life into the figure as a subject. Naked Aye has developed two exciting exhibitions so far – plus a festival of events on the subject of the body at St Margaret’s House in Edinburgh.
My work is exhibited at The Union Gallery in Edinburgh.
