an artist based in Edinburgh, UK, concerned with the human condition. I am fascinated by how we move as individuals through life. I divide my time between painting and teaching at Edinburgh College of Art.
About my artwork
I attempt to record a trace of life. We are here for a limited time, how to use this time best, how to make something from that? I paint, make marks...I am primarily a figurative painter as my subject has always revolved around people-in close up and personal and from a more detached point of view.
Artists I like
too many to mention from the earliest scratches made by early humans in cave to the contemporary artist working with any technology..it's not the medium but the message.
