I am a self-taught artist, having always loved painting since childhood. The early years of my life were spent living in the rural settings of Dumfries & Galloway. Later In life I moved to Devon where I started to experiment with several styles and techniques; As I paint I create the texture effect of being surrounded by the landscape, adding depth to the scene, I love using a technique of flicking paint to create the chaos of wild grown grass and flower stems, creating a contradicting scene of picturesque pandemonium. I heavily use acrylic paint to capture the elegance and depth to my paintings. You can even find a touch of glitter in my artwork.
