I love visitors to my studio to share the botanical studies, landscapes, sea studies, in water colour, oils and acrylics. Prints, cards, bits also available.
I grew up in Africa on a farm in a remote area, and came to love all things alive. I trained as a nurse, later retrained as a teacher of English and Latin, then retrained as a priest. I ministered for 20 years in Scotland in country parishes, and am now retired in Dunoon, where I still help out a bit in my church. I have always painted, and have attended a wide range of courses -perhaps the culmination being Botanical Illustration at the Edinburgh Royal Botanical Gardens. I am increasingly in awe of the wonder of the earth – the plants, the rocks, the sea treasures, the sounds, the swirl of water, the change in seasons and find myself loving the hours spent in detailed work. It is a kind of meditation, a path into the vastness that underlies all.
I will be taking part on the Cowal Summer Art Trail where you will be welcome to come and chat about pictures over a coffee , and even try a bit of sketching yourself perhaps,
Prints and cards are available for most of the images on this site. Do enquire.
