Drawing and painting have always played a big part in my life, and making things just comes with this creative urge. I trained as an Occupational Therapist, then I ran my own country fashion business for several years. Since moving to the Highlands over twenty years ago, the landscape has given me the inspiration to spend more and more time with my paint brush.
The magnificence of the hills and the drama of the changing seasons are too much to ignore. I enjoy painting outside where I feel closest to my subject, as I try to capture the essence of the hills and the ever changing patterns of the sea and lochs. My studio is an old boatshed on the shores of Loch Kishorn. Here, where it is almost like being in a boat, I develop my sketches using watercolour, acrylics and mixed media.
