‘ My paintings are in essence, abstractions of the Scottish landscape in which I find myself immersed. Nature is endlessly fascinating and surprising. Its cycles of growth and decay, its responses to wind, weather, light, and the passage of the seasons, its ceaseless renewal and its infinite complexity of form and behaviour inspire me to paint.

My methodology is in a constant state of flux; a condition perpetuated by the experience of the shifting weather systems that roll inexorably across the landscape, like a counterpoint to the slow creep of geological time. I react freely to the immensity of nature before me, attempting both to capture the spirit of place, and humanity’s transient experience of it.’
