I’m always happy to share my knowledge and experience with others. Having graduated with First Class Honours from Edinburgh College of Art I proceeded to teach there for 20 years before leaving in 2011. I now paint full time and hold relaxed but successful workshop classes at my studio in Stockbridge. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to win many awards and scholarships not least of which have allowed me to spend six months in Australia and also to study at Yale University, USA.

I live in Leith with my two young daughters who patiently teach me mostly what I need to know, not least speaking Gaelic.
