I use watercolour, mixed media and textiles to create work inspired by the natural forms of the beautiful environment of Cowal.
I am fortunate to live in such a stunning area, surrounded by mountains, woodland and coast. I have always worked with organic shapes and enjoy developing work from the wonderful pebbles, seaweed and other natural forms discovered on local beaches. I am also beginning to develop some new work inspired by plants and gardens, a theme I have returned to many times over the years.
I enjoy exploring a theme in different ways and working with a range of media. I love working in watercolour, a medium which I love for its translucent qualities. My work is built up using layers of colour and mark making, a process reflected in my textile work, made from dyed, stitched and layered organza.
From Glasgow/Dunoon take A83 towards Campletown. Take a sharp left just before the war memorial to Cairndow Village. Studio is in garden of 3rd cottage on left.
