I have always loved art and, in particular, painting. Painting gives me feelings of happiness, joy, peace and excitement and I really want to convey these feelings through my art. I want to bring a little happiness to people who purchase my art.
I was raised in Edinburgh, Scotland and despite winning the Art Award at school for most promising artist, I actually studied Chemistry at university! But my passion has always been with art and creating beautiful things. Throughout my life I have painted but it is only more recently that I decided to pursue an art career.
I have lived in several countries but now live with my husband and daughter in Redondo Beach, California. My art is influenced by my time in Scotland, Denmark and Switzerland but Southern California has proven to be an infinite source of inspiration for creating new artwork. I am fascinated by the range of landscapes from the cities to the ocean to the desert and the mountains. I aim to try and recreate the joy I feel every day whilst observing the ever changing landscapes around me.
I enjoy many different styles of art but have always been drawn to modern, abstract art. This is the direction I am currently moving in but I am constantly experimenting with different styles and techniques.
